Christ was deprived of food, water and the daily comforts of life. Yet during this time of testing, Jesus was able to find strength in His Father. (Matt 4:1-11) This year RockPointe will begin observing Lent on Sunday, March 10th, and end on Wednesday, April 17. We fast, or give up something we enjoy-that consumes time or distracts us from God-in order to grow in our personal relationship with Christ. RockPointe encourages you to consider what you may fast from as a sacrifice to your flesh, in order to feed the spirit. Seek the Lord as to what you might give up in order to focus more time on Him in prayer, reading the Bible, devotion and/or serving/giving to a mission or charity.

Lent - What

Lent is the 40-day season leading up to Easter, when Christians imitate Jesus’ withdrawal to the wilderness. Christ was deprived of food, water and the daily comforts of life. Yet during this time of testing, Jesus was able to find strength in His Father. (Matt 4:1-11) This year RockPointe will begin on Sunday, March 10th, and end on Wednesday, April 17.

Lent Why

We fast, or give up something we enjoy-that consumes time or distracts us from God-in order to grow in our personal relationship with Christ. RockPointe encourages you to consider what you may fast from as a sacrifice to your flesh, in order to feed the spirit. Seek the Lord as to what you might give up in order to focus more time on Him in prayer, reading the Bible, devotion and/or serving/giving to a mission or charity.
