Lent is the 40-day journey towards Easter. During this time, God’s people often give up something as a physical reminder of Jesus’ sacrifices and take up a spiritual practice to help them reflect on Jesus love.
Traditionally, people would give up food – a practice called fasting. Today, it looks different for everyone. Some people might give up Netflix, social media or their favourite food – whatever they consider a true sacrifice. Whenever they crave what they’ve given up, they instead set their eyes on Jesus.
It’s our hope that as you give up something physical, you would also take up practices to create space for God in your life. Each week, we will send you an email introducing a different prayer practice to deepen your spiritual walk with Jesus.
