5 Spiritual Habits that will Transform your Life - Lent

Day 1

What is Lent in christendom
Lent is a period of penitential preparation for Easter. In Western churches it begins on Ash Wednesday, six and a half weeks before Easter, and provides for a 40-day fast (Sundays are excluded), in imitation of Jesus Christ’s fasting in the wilderness before he began his public ministry. 

It is a 40-day season of reflection and repentance. It’s a nice thought, but what does practicing Lent actually look like? Over the next 7 days, you will discover five spiritual habits you can start doing during Lent to help you prepare your heart for Resurrection Sunday—and beyond.

Why Lent?

Pause for a moment and look outside. What do you see? What makes you smile?
Whatever you just described, think about this: what you saw was always there—it was just waiting for you to pause and notice it.

That’s the basic purpose of Lent: to create space in the middle of life’s responsibilities to appreciate what’s always been there—God’s presence. 

Lent is a 40-day period leading up to Resurrection Sunday. Based on Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness as mentioned above, Lent is a tool that can help you become more aware of God’s voice and His sacrificial love. Although Lent isn’t actually mentioned in the Bible, it was discussed at the Council of Nicea in 325 AD because it provided a rhythm of reflection and repentance for Christians as they entered spring—a season often associated with new beginnings. 

The purpose of Lent isn’t to “better” your life, but to center your life on what matters most: the One who made you and died for you. And one of the ways you do this is through practicing spiritual habits.
