Profiting by the Grace of God
just check out this site:
Lent has been observed by Christians since the fourth century.
It is a time of reflection, penitence and spiritual renewal before Easter.
Lent ends at midnight on Holy Saturday, the night before Easter Sunday.
During Lent some Christians focus on giving up something. Is it abusolutely
necessary for the observance of Lent to give up a delicacy or a bad habit or
an hour of sleep in order to pray? Who can truly say? What one does during
the Lenten period should be a matter between a Christian and God. Some
may decide to do something extra for their spirtual growth. Others may
indeed "give up" something that's a hindrance to the spiritual life. Some
may make a special sacrifice of some sort. And some may decide to improve
their communication and fellowship with God by having special times of prayer
throughout the day, or vow to worship in the church at every service held.
The important thing is to make Lent a special time, a memorable time. A time
so meaningful that it sets the tone for the rest of the entire year. At the very
least it should be a time of sincere spiritual growth.

put him first all the rest will be provided.

16. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
17. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but to save the world through him. NIV
