This week will witness the beginning of the season of Lent.  For those not familiar with the Church calendar, Lent is the Christian season of preparation for Easter and the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  In Western Christianity, Ash Wednesday marks the first day, or the start of the season of Lent, which begins forty days prior to Easter (Sundays are not included in the count because they are to be days of celebration instead of days of preparation).  The forty day period is in recognition of Jesus spending forty days in the wilderness, following His baptism, preparing to launch His public ministry.  This year, Ash Wednesday is March 5th.  The purpose of this period of preparation is to intentionally set aside time for reflection on Christ.  The intent behind the practice of fasting during Lent is not merely the practice of self-denial, though this discipline is to be a part of the Christian lifestyle, and the spiritual discipline of fasting is much broader than merely giving up an item of food for a short period of time.  The primary intent of fasting during this season is preparation.  This means that if, for example, you decided to give up, or fast from, watching television in the evenings from six to eight o’clock, you would spend that time in prayer and Bible study focusing on Jesus Christ—His suffering and His sacrifice, His life, death, burial, and resurrection.  With all this in mind, I want to encourage you to begin your preparation now and perhaps the reality of the resurrection of Jesus Christ will become more real to you than it has even been; if it does, you will never be the same.
