A Lenten Reflection
We are now in the season of lent, the journey to spiritual wellness.
For 40 days Jesus fasted, prayed, learnt and taught. The devil tempted him, the Angels lifted him up. He agonized in the garden, he forgave sinners, he suffered, was crucified, and was buried. And then on the 3rd day, that we called Easter Day, he rose from the dead to save us from our sins and to convince us that everything he said about God and us was true.
For the 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Day we too must pray and learn to decrease so that Christ can increase in us (John 3: 30). We must endeavour to loose our false life and gain our real life, and Christ light will shine on us.
