Vicar Message - March 2018

Dearly Beloved in Christ,
We as Christians the followers of Christ are going through the Great Lent Season of this year. Some of the definitions of lent in dictionaries are, ‘in Christianity a time of fasting and repentance in the spring, beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending several weeks later on Easter’. To give something up for Lent is to abandon a pleasurable habit as an act of devotion and self discipline.
Cambridge Dictionary explains Lent as, ‘in the Christian religion 40 days before Easter a period during which for religious reasons, some people stop doing particular things that they enjoy’. In Lent many Christians commit to fasting as well as giving up certain luxuries in order to replicate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ’s journey into the desert for 40 days. In general the purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for Easter through prayer, doing penance mortifying the flesh, repentance of sins, alms giving and self denial. 
Billy Graham the U.S Evangelists recently died at the age of 99, one of the most influential preacher of the 21th century once said “Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion-it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like CHRIST”. The need of our day is a spiritual and mental renewal which will be more than increasing in Church membership and attendance. It should be a thirst for God conscious, mental righteousness and a passion for Christ like living.
Lent is a time of humbling ourselves as people of God and as reconciled community. In this season our prayer must be, Lord, give us courage to be with you in the pain of others and be more human in our attitude.
May God bless us all.


Mathew Babyachen
