It is not about me but about him.
Lent is not about what I can do for God or what I am giving up.
I think Lent is about Jesus. Everything is always about Jesus.
There is a running joke with my chemistry students (I teach high school chemistry at a christian school). When they don’t know the right chemistry answer, I often hear “JESUS”!
How many possible electrons are in the second energy level? Jesus!
What two elements bond to make salt? Jesus!
I confess, I have been thinking about this season of Lent from my perspective.
What can I give, do, say that will improve my relationship with God.
Well, I think a change is in order.
I want to start looking at Lent as a chance for God to do something.
What does Jesus want out of Lent?
I feel like if I can answer that question, my life won’t ever be the same.
