Lent is here again to renew our faith and bring us closer to God. Lent is not just a season to fast, sacrifice things most dearer to us and penance. It’s the time to learn about his love, Enjoy his shower of blessings, make ourselves new and Finally testify his incomparable grace.
Lent by itself is a very special thing. Let’s try to make it even more special by sticking to some promises and mark our presence. The first Promise we will do today to mark the beginning of lent is to SPREAD LOVE.
When Jesus resurrected and went back to His place in heaven, He instructed His disciples to spread to all Four corners to preach His word. He wanted to spread His love He has in abundance to each and every living being. Now we must continue what He has already started. We need not travel corners or spend time pouring on ways to spend love.
Start at Home. There may be so many occasions we have used a harsh word to people at home or a physical turbulence. Many a times we may have even forgotten to call on the people who have expected us. Just say sorry or Thank you or even more simple, talk to the people who expect your love.
Smile at people You See at street or at work. No-one knows what they are going through. Your smile may bring their hope of living back.
A small excerpt from the Bible. Apostle Paul writes in Romans that
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
It just means that WE ARE LOVED FOREVER.
Now it’s our turn to spread it far and wide. Let’s make this promise today to make the World a loving heaven.
