Reflection Question 4: Lent is a special time of preparation and training. In sport, education and many areas of life, training strengthens and shapes us. God trained Israel through 40 years in the desert. God led Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit into the desert for 40 days. We too are led into the desert for 40 days of Lent. We are encouraged to come face-to-face with the deep temptation of living only to satisfy our hungry bodies. Fasting goes deeper than not having ‘lollies’ for Lent. What sensual appetite within you needs balance and training? What training exercise could you practice each day?
