Lent

Posted by bethlehemlutheran on February 21, 2012 at 3:45 PM

This week the Church enters Lent, the great penitential season of the church year. None of us likes to admit we are wrong, but we aren’t able to accept God’s unconditional love if we don’t do it. The Church has set aside this time to help us.
The word “Lent” comes from ancient words meaning “springtime.” If we embrace the season and allow ourselves to face up to our shortcomings and open our hearts to God through Jesus, this time can be a springtime for our souls, a season of new growth and flowering.
The law exists to give us a way to examine ourselves, but the law given by Moses can only accuse, it cannot save. For our sakes (Yes, that includes you.) Jesus takes the punishment required by the law, so that we have nothing left to do, except to accept his gift of unconditional love.

Blessings for your Lenten journey,
