LENT SERIES: HOW I SPEND LENT
I thought I’d make this post since Lent is beginning .A short series separate from what I do every month, so the regular videos on my book reviews and such will happen regularly as they do, but just for Feb and March there are going to be some additional videos on things that I found helpful during Lent.
So during the last lent I was using this pdf, which I found useful and thought I’d re-share. Although I am not a traditionalist ,I don’t believe in being a lent Christian since we are Christian all year long. I do find lent helpful to inculcate new habits and it’s really motivational since many fellow brothers and sisters too are walking along.
So with this pdf you can put down habits you want to follow consistently during the lent. It could be like spending more time reading the bible ,reading only Christian books, Less internet time or Watching no TV. I found the last one particularly very very helpful I honestly discovered a lot of time.
Fasting has been definitely helpful too, although I’d like to stress again, I don’t believe in traditionalism, do it if you feel like it. But I do not recommend on stressing out on things – obedience is important than all outward professions because that would be just plain hypocrisy
Zechariah 7:5-7 (KJV) Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, even to me? And when ye did eat, and when ye did drink, did not ye eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves? Should ye not hear the words which the LORD hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when men inhabited the south and the plain?
John 14:21 (KJV) He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
