Are you ready for Easter?
We don’t mean, have you got your Easter Eggs, we mean are you ready to truly enter into the celebration that Jesus has died for our redemption and risen again for our new life?
Easter is approaching fast and we want to make sure we’re ready. So, to help us make the most of this Easter, we’ve prepared a guide to Lent. Lent is an old Christian season that helps us enter into the sufferings of Jesus and draw closer to him. Lent helps us focus on the way Jesus gave up everything in order to save us and leads us up to the triumph of Easter Sunday when he won the victory of sin, Satan and death itself.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and, this year, also happens to fall on Valentine’s Day. How appropriate that the beginning of a season remembering Christ’s suffering should begin with a celebration of love. There is no greater love than the love of Christ who gave up everything for undeserving people, giving them new life, hope and joy forevermore.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans chapter 5 verse 8
