As we approach the Easter season, tomorrow will mark the beginning of Lent, 40 days of fasting meant to reorient our lives on the sacrifice Christ made on our behalf and remind us of our daily dependence on him.
If you don’t come from a tradition where Lent is commonly observed, this is traditionally a time to fast from a specific luxury or comfort, forcing you to depend more on Christ to compensate for its value in your life. Many believers also accompany this time with a devotional series.
At its heart, Lent is about sacrifice. It’s about giving up things in your life that hinder your dependence on the one who ultimately sustains you.
At e3 Partners, we want to add a creative twist to the tradition. Beginning tomorrow, tune in on social media for #40DaysofSacrifice. Each day, you’ll be challenged to make a small sacrifice or gesture towards others that requires giving of yourself and advancing God’s Kingdom in some small way.
Want to participate? Just follow these steps!
- Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and watch for the daily updates each morning.
- Put the daily suggestion to practice.
- Tell the world about your experience on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #40DaysofSacrifice to share how God is using it in your life!
We can’t wait to see what God does in your life in this season!
