“I’ll give up candy!” “No ice cream for me during Lent!” I remember such resolutions as a boy, but now I’m an adult, and so I reflect on what Christ suggests. He recommends, “Repent and believe in the gospel.” Repent from the greek word metanoia, means a full conversion of the whole person from me into another Christ in goals, motivations, and effort. Burt how is that possible? By resolving to begin each lenten day with 10 minutes of  prayer in God’s presence or Bible meditation,.Then complete this sacred sojourn by selecting a person or event that day in which you will speak and behave as a Christ. Who knows? Perhaps, this habit will take over your life. BE CAREFUL; YOU COULD BECOME ANOTHER CHRIST!
