For serious followers of Jesus Christ, Lent is an opportunity to confront our own selfish tendencies and to humble ourselves before God. Since the seventh century, Christians have discovered real spiritual benefit as they have observed a season of spiritual emphasis before Easter-a forty-day fast over six weeks from Ash Wednesday to Easter. This book is a devotional guide based on the Sermon on the Mount to help believers examine themselves and to deepen in their love and commitment for Christ. Despite persecution in many places on the globe, Christians today have a greater share of this world's wealth than previous generations. Wise believers have always been more concerned about the pollution of the church by the world from within than the threats against the church from without. Materialism, pride, and self-centeredness are issues that every generation of Christ-followers must address-this is where the real spiritual battle takes place. This devotional guide is personal and introspective, guiding the believer to examine himself against the biblical standard and to refocus his life on Christ. It is a celebration of the Savior's constant love and mercy that forgives our sins, cleanses us within, lifts us up, and draws us to His face and His heart.
