Lent, pt. 7

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”!

asking questions

How many possible electrons are in the second energy level? Jesus!

What two elements bond to make salt? Jesus!

jesus is the answer


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.

Good night.

  1. Hey Tim,
    I, too, am observing Lent for the first time! Had already determined some things I’d “do and not do” during this period before I read your first post. I am enjoying your posts as part of my bedtime routine. Thanks for sharing. Jerilyn
