What Is Lent And Why Does It Last 40 Days? (By The United Methodist Church - www.umc.org)
The Cross With A Crown Of Thorns Heralds The Beginning Of Easter
Jesus Died For "ALL" Of Our Sins - ACCEPT JESUS "NOW"
Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wed- nesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word "lencten" which means "Spring." The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of satan and preparing to begin His ministry. Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection in the early Church. Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism.
Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.
Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a "mini Easter" and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection (of Jesus). Above article is courtesy of The United Methodist Church - www.umc.org.
