What Is Lent

Why Do We Celebrate It?

Lent is the 40 day period leading to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is modeled after Jesus' time in the wilderness.

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And he fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterward he was hungry. Matthew 4:1-2

Some Christian traditions celebrate this 40 day period of prayer, introspection and preparation as a part of their religious obligation. We celebrate it as a joy as we love our Savior and draw close to Him in study, prayer, and worship.
