Fasting Focus :: Week Six of Lent :: The Tomb & Beyond


The Gospels are the narrative of the Eternal God stepping into time and space in the Person of Jesus Christ.  This week, we will be reflecting on the time Jesus was in the Tomb.

We will be fasting time this week. Get up a half-hour or an hour earlier to read the Bible and pray.  Spend your time serving others rather than indulging yourself.  Make it a goal to bless someone through your words or actions daily.  Give someone the gift of your listening ear.

Resist the urge to share your troubles, but instead, focus on bearing someone else’s burdens.  Commit to a specific task to help someone. Perhaps help a friend move or paint, serve the poor, or stop to help a stranger, especially if you are in a hurry to get somewhere.

Keep journal entries of what it is like to spend your time on others.
