The season of Lent has begun, journey on! Lent is often described as a time of preparation and an opportunity to go deeper with God. This means that it’s a time for personal reflection that prepares people’s hearts and minds for Good Friday and Easter.
During this season of Lent 2021, SCF is making available an excellent 40-day devotional called, “Behold the King of Glory” by Russ Ramsey (available on our website, shanghaifellowship.org/beholdkingdevo) and a biblical teaching series called, “Promises” by Pastor Dale. You can catch the series during SCF Online, Sundays at 11am here: shanghaicommunityfellowship.online.church and on the SCF YouTube channel.
During Lent, Christians usually do three things to prepare: pray, fast, and give. In prayer, we focus on our need for forgiveness and the need to forgive others, in fasting we give something up as a way to express our total dependence on Christ, and in giving we express our gratitude for all that God has given us; “freely we have received, freely we give.”
For now, “keep on keeping on”
