Gerike, pastor Trinity Lutheran Church, Algona WHAT'S WITH LENT? The Lenten season has been dear to the hearts of earnest Christians through the centuries. Each year, beginning with Ash Wednesday, Christians in spirit go with the Lord from Gethsemane to Golgotha. They do so in a mood of critical self-examination and sincere re-consecration. They do this NOT because there is some Law commanding believers to do so, but because faith and love motivates them to hold up the Christ of the Cross. The word Lent is not found in the Bible, nor does it have a particularly religious origin. It simply means 'spring'. In Middle English it appears as 'lenten'; and in Ahglo-Saxton as 'lencten'; and in the German as Lenz. It is a time when days lengthen. It is spring. Lent is the period of forty days, NOT counting the Sundays, just prior to Easter. Why forty? The number 40 is connected with several events in Sacred Scriptures. Jesus, for example, fasted 40 days and 40 nights, being tempted in the desert regions. Jesus showed Himself alive after His resurrection for 40 days. There are folks who see Lent as a time in which to GIVE UP something. While we will not quarrel about this, most of this kind of thing tends to be too easy, on too low a level. If one is going to GIVE UP something then make it something challenging like GIVING UP one's pet sins. Since the Lenten season is meant to be a time of heightened discipline and devotion under the banner of Salvation's Cross, Christians ought to TAKE ON something, — like regular Bible reading in the home, — regular church attendance, — living a self- sacrificing life. — and living the forgiving life! There are folks who are bored with Lent. They see no point in getting deep down into the history of the suffering and death of Jesus. Some are just too spiritually flabby and lazy to accept any kind of spiritual challenge; some have pulled out so many foundation-stones of Bible teaching that there isn.'t much left about which to get excited; some are just too busy with the. mad scramble of-,,;..,,,.. BEING THE GREATEST! Even the Lord's disciples were not above the desire of being great. Reading the gospels, one comes to the con- Advonce Publishing Co. "Algona's Progressive Newspaper" Printing Office Supplies elusion that "who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 18, 1) was not an unpopular subject among the disciples. Once Jesus asked, "what was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?" (Mark 9, 33). No one wanted to answer. They were a bit ashamed, for on the way "they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest." (Mark 9, 33). Nor did tempers always remain even for "there was a strife vamong them, which of them should be accounted the greatest." (Luke 22, 24.26). That's when the Lord took over. He did not condemn the desire for greatness in His kingdom. Incidentally, too many people think too little of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. They have too little time for Him. (How about you?) It is out in the world that they want to be the greatest. THE GREATEST! Greatness, said the suffering Servant, Jesus, is achieved by and through suffering. We are encouraged to "run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who ENDURED THE CROSS, DESPISING THE SHAME." (Hebrews 12, 1. 2.) "He is despised and rejected of men: a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. To His disciples, Jesus said: "Ye shall drink of that cup," meaning that every disciole of Jesus will have to endure suffering. The hatred of the world, more or less tribulation and persecution, in some instances even bloody martyrdom, are the lot of Christ's followers. This is their cup which they share with Him to whom they are joined as disciples and believers. Someone has said, when you serve and serve well, you cannot expect that life should be a bed of roses for you. In fact, all you might get in return are headaches and heartaches. That's the cup, the drinking of which, will lead to greatness in Christ's kingdom. We shall be "heirs and joint heirs with Christ: if so be that we suffer with Him. that we may be also glorified together." (Romans 8, 17). SERVICE! "Whosoever will be great among "you; shall be your minister; and whosoever of you will be chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister." (Mark 10, 43-45). Formers Service Center 525 S.

Walk with Him tj>e.dus : ty roads of Palestine. See how He helped the poor, the maimed, the stricken, the blind, the deaf, and the very dead. See Him. as He raises the fallen, cheers the faint, feeds the hungry, and washes the disciples,' feet. He served humbly! The road to greatness in the kingdom is the road of lowly service. Such service may take the form of an encouraging word, a cup of cold water, a shared meal, a widow's mite, a gift of millions, or of simple understanding. Such service may take the form of sharing one's faith by personal witnessing; prayer on behalf of others, even an enemy: and bringing forgiveness to a sin-sick soul. Would you be truly great in Christ's kingdom? Then make the world better by bringing love (1 Corinthians 13) where there is hatred. Heal a wounded heart. Comfort a poor sinner. Dry a tear. Give someone a full, unearned, measure of love. Visit the sick and fprsaken. Teach someone how to love and serve. Lead someone to Jesus. '' May your keeping of-fcent lead jrel into such paths of greatness in the Kingdom because Christ loved you and gave Himself for you. Kossuth Mutual Ins. Assn.
