Service (or sacrifice) during the 40 days of lent …
Hi and welcome to the first Sunday of Lent. So, here we are, a few days into what is often called the ‘season of grief’. This sorrowful period can also be described as the period of ‘bright sadness’ too, because it all ends with the great celebration and ressurection of the Lord!
To simplify this further … Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is also time a of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, this was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus upon their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something, or through serving and helping others.
The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan. Many people are not be familiar with the fact that Sundays during Lent are not counted within the forty days, as each Sunday represents a “mini-Easter” celebration of the Jesus’ victory over sin and death. – (Yeehah)
Remember though, the choice to ‘serve’ others or even make a small sacrifice is always your own. We hope you enjoy the post below, no matter what your ‘faith’. Have a great week ahead, God bless to all!
“In most areas of people’s lives, the ego often dictates one’s thoughts and actions, and so the role you play within the theatre of life upon the Earth-plane actually bears no relation or consequence. You are all born ‘equal’ (please dismiss one’s physicality, gender or material surroundings), and possess the same Divine essence inside you, therefore no one should be seen as being or working above or below one’s ‘station’. (Do you ever imagine your life this way?)
One should not worry about the whys, what’s and wherefores, but simply do the best you can. After all, those in what some call a menial job still get served too, be it in a shop, store, or restaurant for example, so who serves who the most? In reality, you all serve one another without even thinking or believing it. Know it is more natural to assist and help each other, even if you don’t realize or contemplate it! In truth, one could say you are still serving ‘God’, as every one of you is a spark of Divinity and me.
Please understand, only your heart and Soul contain the humility to overcome the smugness of false power and ego, or those unwanted depths and lows of what seems an unworthiness of self, carried towards your fellow ‘man’. True service must therefore start with love, not for self-gain or in pity either, but because it will enable you to elevate the oneness of you all, now and forever. Amen.” PS. By sharing and serving all life, then life can serve you too!
