No, I'm not Catholic.
Yes, I observe Lent.
Lent is the season between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. During this time we should be intentional on preparing ourselves for the Resurrection Sunday. Think of Lent as the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Morning. It's the time where you decorate, prepare yourself, your homes and your families to worship on Christmas, or in view of Lent it's the preparation leading to Easter.
The time leading up to Easter we ought to focus on our sin and our need for a Savior. We're called to step back and examine our lives, are we fighting to Treasure Jesus above all else or are we coasting through life never ceasing moments to Cultivate the Gospel in our daily tasks?
For those wondering, the time of the Lenten Season has already started. If this is the first you've heard about it, don't worry, you have plenty of time to jump in and began to really focus on the Atonement that was purchased on Good Friday. An Atonement that has brought the Redeemed to have a blameless, righteous and perfect standing before God. The following is a quote from Noel Piper's book Treasuring God in our Traditions.
Do you observe Lent as a Protestant and what ways do you use this time as preparing yourself and your family for Easter?
