Following Jesus During Lent
Jesus was the perfect God-man. But even for Him, life was a struggle. Before He stepped out victorious from the tomb, He had to first endure weakness, temptation, betrayal, and physical death. One major time of trial started right at the beginning of His ministry.
The Word says, “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry” (Matthew 4:1-2). He faced hunger and want in the wilderness along with the most alluring temptations our common enemy could muster—and He did it willingly. He did it to obey God the Father and overcome all temptation for us.
We can follow His example, relying on God and His Word for sustenance rather than the constant supply of food and busyness with which we often live daily. For many of us, heading into the wilderness—somewhere in nature free from distraction—is critical. It can help us cleanse our minds and hearts by focusing only on the input God brings. Fasting from food can also be helpful, because the hunger we feel can remind us of our need for God. Fast and feast on Jesus today!
Getting Ready for the Resurrection
God is holy—utterly set apart from all things at a distance none can cross. He is unlike anything or anyone we have met. He is beyond us. But, amazingly, His desire is for us, to know us and be near us. He made us for Himself, and Jesus came to make a way to reunite us with Him.
His forgiveness is ready and waiting for us today, but He wants us to be open and honest about what we’ve done, laying our sins bare and agreeing with Him about them. When we do, He welcomes us with open arms. The good news of the Gospel is really good news. All that was once dead can be brought to life, and all that was broken can be set right—because of Jesus. And the Word is clear: the resurrection is everything.
In the days of the early church, some people challenged Paul with the idea that there was no such thing as resurrection. He responded, “…if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:13-14). The miracle of Christ’s resurrection is paramount for the Christian faith. By it, mankind is freed from slavery to sin and death to be adopted into God’s family!
Now, God’s Word promises that the Spirit who empowered Jesus to burst from the grave—breaking the chains of death forever—will also burst forth from your once-dead body to fill your world with light and life. That is what we are celebrating at Easter! May we live all our days in light of the resurrection.
