What are you giving up for 40 days and nights? Jesus Christ walked the desert, fasted and prayed after He was baptist by John the Baptist. Satan tested and tempted Jesus but He refused every temptation and returned to Galilee to begin His ministry.
This year, Lent is from Wednesday, February 26th thru Thursday, April 9th. Christians between the ages of 14 and 59 fast and abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent. It is a season of reflection and preparation before celebrating Easter.
The placing of repentance ashes on the forehead to “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
I know I need to give up some things like sodas, social media, nicotine, etc. One battle at a time. Good luck with your sacrifices.
