This week, the fearless four discuss the season of Lent. What is the purpose of Lent, since we are to repent of our sins daily? Why do we give up pleasures and specific sins during Lent? What is the purpose of fasting? What is our focus during this holy season? Fasting and bodily preparation are indeed fine outward training, but our faith is in Christ. Ultimately it is the gift of faith in Christ, the gift to believe despite our unbelief in the forgiveness freely offered to us in Jesus that is our focus during Lent. And while that is our weekly and daily focus throughout the year, Lent provides an amplified concentration on our Savior and His specific work of salvation for us sinners.
