LET THIS LENTEN PERIOD BE A LIFE-CHANGER
Today 16th February is “SHROVE TUESDAY, or Pancake Tuesday. We were to have a Pancake lunch today in our Retirement Village but it had to be cancelled because of a Covid-19 Lockdown. Shrove Tuesday is always the day before the start of Lent, many of my readers were never brought up to participate in Lent, ands neither was I. I have come to see why the Church Fathers instituted Lent and other specific periods in the church calendar, so that God’s people with SIT DOWN AND REFECT on the particular time and contemplate what the Lord has done, and wants to He wants to do in the lives of His people.
The churches that practice Lent (for example) have special services and readings to assist their members, so it is just as I quoted those words from an old hymn yesterday, “TELL ME THE STORY OFTEN FOR I FORGET SO SOON.
My blogs will seek to remind you during these next 40 days of GOD’S SO GREAT SALVATION purchased for us through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So, I encourage you to plan ahead and deliberately set aside time daily to mediate on this GOD’S AWESOME REDEMPTION PLAN, not just for all His creation but for you personally. May the Holy Spirit speak to you especially during this time, it may mean times of Repentance, but it will sure include times of Refreshing and Renewal, I am praying that it will also be a time of REVELATION, and you personally appropriate (take for yourself) an aspect of God’s so great Salvation that will take you to a new level of intimacy and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
MAY IT BE A LENTEN PERIOD YOU WILL NEVER FORGET AMEN.
