Lent is

Lent is not only a season of self-denial; it is a season of blessing. Lent is about thereminder and the reassurance that we constantly need that God will bless us with theresources needed—far beyond what the idolatrous “rich food” could ever supply—to doGod’s work and to endure and continue on in the work.a. Lent’s blessing comes in the form of knowledge, wisdom, and the skills needed tounderstand the times and to work for redemptive societal transformation.b. Lent’s blessing is to put us where we need to be in order to further the work ofredemptive societal transformation.c. Lent’s blessing is the blessing to endure, to continue on, and not give up in the work ofsocietal redemption.CelebrationWe’ve learned several things from Daniel’s Lent and about the season of Lent from thispassage. We’ve learned about the special purposes of the Lenten Season. We’ve learnedthat the trials of Lent and the self-denial in Lent are about preparing us for the work ofGod, for how God wants to use you in God’s work of societal transformation in a strangeland and in the places of exile and oppression. But most importantly Lent provides us themessage that God has not abandoned us in Babylon. God has not abandoned us in theplaces of pain, difficulty, and exile. God has not left God’s people without a witness thatGod is still with us in the very places where we might feel most alone and mostabandoned. In fact, Lent provides the message that precisely in the places of oppressionwe need not sell out our souls to the false gods all around us trying to seduce us to trust inthem. No. Lent tells us that precisely in the places of exile and as we’re faithful to God’swork of transformation in those places, God will make us “ten times better” to press on inGod’s work. This is the message of Daniel’s Lent.Thank you, God, for the Season of Lent. Thank you for your faithfulness. Thank you forthe strength that you give us to press on and continue on in your work. Thank you forgiving us what we need to accomplish your work.V. Songs to Accompany This SermonA. Well-known Song(s)He Never Said a Mumblin’ Word. By Moses HoganAin’t Got Time to Die.
