Forty-six days before Easter, Christians all over the world recognize Ash Wednesday as the start of Lent, or Easter season. Today is that day.
Today Christ-followers focus special attention on a serious intervention that took place over 2,000 years ago. That’s when the Son of God broke into human flesh and paid the sin debts of every person who would accept His great salvation gift. On this Ash Wednesday Christians everywhere grieve their offenses, confess their transgressions, and purpose to meditate more intentionally on Jesus’ life and redemption mission.
