Today begins the season of Lent, which is the period of fasting leading up to the feast of Easter that recalls Jesus’ 40-day fast in the wilderness.
Today is also Ash Wednesday. Lent is a season of confession and repentance. Confession and repentance is a powerful action for Christians. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
Take time for confession…not shallow confession, but rather deep, meaningful confession. This type of confession gives you a deeper appreciation of God’s grace.
