BIG DADDY WEAVE
Ash Wednesday marks the first day, or the start of the season of Lent, which begins 40 days prior to Easter (Sundays are not included in the count).
Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. During some Ash Wednesday services, the minister will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers.
Not all Christian churches observe Ash Wednesday or Lent. They are mostly observed by the Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian and Anglican denominations, and also by Roman Catholics. Eastern Orthodox churches observe Lent or Great Lent, during the 6 weeks or 40 days preceding Palm Sunday with fasting continuing during the Holy Week of Orthodox Easter. Lent for Eastern Orthodox churches begins on Monday (called Clean Monday) and Ash Wednesday is not observed.
The Bible does not mention Ash Wednesday or the custom of Lent, HOWEVER, the practice of repentance and mourning in ashes is found in 2 Samuel 13:19; Esther 4:1; Job 2:8; Daniel 9:3; and Matthew 11:21.
Funny title huh! Well, of course I love Noah and I surely love handsome Russell Crowe too! He is such a great actor – and his foreign ways are a bit interesting just as much! ……..LOL
I am SHOCKED that Hollywood has even produced a movie about “The Bible” first of all – Then I am shocked that they convinced Russell Crowe to accept the part..I mean not saying that he is not a religious man or anything but what BIG TIME Hollywood actors do you know have done any CHRISTIAN BASED roles?
The first thing that I thought of was how during Easter of this year, there was a blockbuster movie about The Bible and the life of Jesus Christ on The History Channel and it made tons of great reviews, ratings and money! So I guess that being CHRISTIAN is the new “it thing” for Hollywood to make money….I do not know for sure if that is the case but it is an EASY thing to speculate – Welp, I pray that God penetrates not only Russell Crowe’s spirit but everyone who is connected to this movie – I am sure that this movie will be a huge money maker – More so I pray that people’s lives will be changed too.
JESUS shed his blood for YOU… Accept him into your heart and live a better life than you are currently experiencing today. Say out of your mouth that you believe that he died on the cross for you, that he died so that you can have eternal life, that he died so that your sins can be cleansed.
Jesus died so that he could save you from yourself, admit that you are a NOT living right and that you trust that God can change you and make you whole. This is the only time that blood and love should go together because He indeed paid a high price for us all – with His life.
No one knows what the future holds so I pray that you would rather walk with him than without HIM… Now that you have Said it, because you Believed it, now Share it, so that others can help you Walk it….
I love you dearly, and I promise that you have made the best decision!
Congratulations it can be your turn! Today can be YOUR Spiritual Birthday, if you choose to born Again by accepting Jesus Christ into your life. Now please remember this day, for it is just as important as any other day that you choose to celebrate.
