Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church Sacred Season of Lent

What is Lent?

Beginning Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017, the Christian Church worldwide will celebrate the Holy Season of Lent. This is the Season that prepares us for the commemoration of the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. Lent has traditionally been marked by the expression of various spiritual disciplines, but the most prominent of them are praying and fasting. This year I have been led by God to call our entire church to observe this Season through forty (40) days of praying and fasting. Our Lord showed us through His own example the virtues of and victories won through fasting and praying. Without doubt, the Lenten Season is marked by the commitments of sacrifice and surrender. As we surrender our wills to God’s and sacrifice those things we enjoy, and often think we cannot live without, then fill the gaps with prayer, meditation and the reading of Scripture, we will find that our journey of Christian discipleship will become much more fulfilling and enriching.
