Lent is here and we have all the time we need to be refreshed and to have a spiritual reboot. This is the time of year when Christians are on "retreat" while still in the midst of doing every day things. It's an extra meaningful season because we journey with Jesus and go into the desert with Him.
Contrary to how many people feel, Lent is not a time of gloom and doom. It's a time of renewal and it's a time to prepare for Easter!!!
So how do I get the most out of this season?
You can look at it as a feast. If you had the chance to go to an Eat-All-You can buffet, you wouldn't just sit in one corner waiting for the food to fall into your mouth right? You have to go get some! You would need to look around, see what you like and partake. The more you get, the more worth it is for you! In the same way, the more you seek God during Lent, the more you will have of Him!
"...there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul." Deuteronomy 4:29

FREE! "Who is that Man?" Lenten e-Book by Dr. Ray Pritchard
Lent begins on Wednesday, February 13. During the 40-day period leading up to Easter, Christians around the world take a spiritual journey with our Lord as he travels to Jerusalem.
Lent ends with Holy Week, which takes us to Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
This year I’m inviting our friends to join us in a Lenten devotional series called “Who Is That Man?” We’re releasing the entire series in ebook format that you can download for free.
In this Lenten journey we will focus on questions found in the four gospels.
Some are questions asked to Jesus.
Some are questions asked about Jesus.
Some are questions asked by Jesus.
Each question reveals something about the person who asked. Each question points us in the direction of new truth. Each question brings us face to face with Jesus Christ.
