We have entered the season of Lent in the Church. Lent began today (Ash Wednesday) and goes through to Thursday, March 29 (Maundy Thursday). It leads us with Christ to the night he was betrayed. During this time we’re encouraged to: give up, give to, gain from. Give up (fasting): food, certain comforts, media, etc. Give to: blessing those with need. Gain from: sustained in our time spent walking with Jesus.  The Apostle Paul said in Philippians, “I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.” (Phil. 3:10-11)
