What is Lent?
So what exactly is Lent? And why do we celebrate it?
Different religious traditions observe Lent in different ways. But essentially, Lent is a 40-day observance leading to Holy Week and Easter. The purpose of participating and engaging in this time of preparation is to get closer to Christ.

Jesus came to finish something that we were too powerless to escape on our own.
In the midst of our humanity, we can begin to rest in the security of our identity in the One whose human “end” was our very beginning.
We have a Savior who walked through incomprehensible suffering just so He could unmake what our wicked hearts produced.
When we behold one another, we walk in the power of God’s Kingdom here on earth.
If we want our faith to grow, we must focus on Jesus, not on the adequacy of our faith.
