One of the reasons I have chosen the lead point on giving up Sin for Lent up above in the attachment  is because that is what the pastor challenged us to do for Lent.  Sure we can give up food  and other material things of the world he said;  but he made this challenge! “To Give up SIN”

Something to think upon……………………

If Jesus Christ died on the cross for our Sins…… Can we give up SIN 40 days for him?

Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter. Ash Wednesday marks the first day, or the start of the season of Lent, which begins 40 days prior to Easter (Sundays are not included in the count).

Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. The purpose is to set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ - his suffering and his sacrifice, his life, death, burial and resurrection.

The Bible does not mention the custom of Lent, however, the practice of repentance and mourning in ashes is found in 2 Samuel 13:19; Esther 4:1; Job 2:8; Daniel 9:3; and Matthew 11:21.

Good evening everyone I thank God for another opportunity to send these words of preparation for this 4th Sunday of Advent.  Please keep those whom are less fortunate and sick and shut in lifted up in prayer doing these holiday season. 

We will be studying in the book of Luke, the 1st chapter versus 46-56. The lesson title will be, "KEEP THE FAITH, YOUR BLESSINGS IS ON THE WAY." 

Thank you in advance for your ministry of present.
