We are now well into the season of Lent. These six weeks before Easter are a very important spiritual time for us as we journey with Jesus to Jerusalem, rejection, suffering, and death. The forty days of Lent typically represent the forty days Jesus spent in the wilderness, where He was tempted by the devil. It was spiritual “boot camp” in preparation for Jesus’ ministry and the ultimate battle between good and evil, when Jesus would defeat our sins at the cross and conquer death with the Resurrection.
For us, Lent is a time of spiritual examination and recognition of our sinfulness and mortality. We might give up something that is not good for us, such as sweets, soft drinks, salty foods, etc. that are tempting to us. That is an old tradition that many people still participate in and one that can be quite meaningful. Still others look at Lent as a time to give more of ourselves in devotion and service to Jesus. We intentionally spend more time in worship, prayer, study, devotion, and service to draw closer to our Lord. I encourage you to use the Lenten devotional each day, attend worship regularly, come to our Lenten Family Nights, go to the Provincial Days of Prayer, and attend each night of Holy Week. We cannot fully appreciate the joy of Easter Sunday without first experiencing the pain and death of Good Friday. We must be faithful to Jesus as He is always faithful to us.
I pray that each of us experiences Christ anew during this Lenten season and that we grow stronger in our relationship with Him. May it be a time of spiritual renewal for us and our church.
God bless and I’ll see you in church,
Olivet offers a traditional Moravian style service on Sunday Morning at 11:00 AM. Using hymns and liturgies from the Moravian Book of Worship the worshiper is led to a point when the children have a special time with the pastor and then a Gospel Sermon is preached by the Pastor or the Pastoral Assistant.
Communion is offered some eight times during the year, and all professing Christians are welcome to participate.
