About this Episode

Stick to the three pillars of Lent for the full forty days with this strategy from Jeff Cavins.

We hear about fasting, almsgiving, and prayer so often during Lent that the words can become bland and lose meaning.

But these practices are not arbitrary measures designed to make us miserable for forty days. They are spiritual disciplines specifically aimed at three areas of weakness in our souls. They help us overcome sin and become more like Jesus.

Jeff compares biblical figures from Genesis and 1 John to Jesus’ example in the Gospel of Matthew. He also provides some alternate ways of thinking about fasting, almsgiving, and prayer to help rejuvenate our commitment this Lent.
