(Interview) Author Robert J. Nash on Preparing for Lent

It’s February and a few days more, Lent or Holy Week will start. It will be a time to commemorate Christ death, burial and triumphant resurrection. As much as Christmas is important, so is Lent for Christians. But how do we celebrate this event? We ask Robert J. Nash, author of Last Words: Seven Sayings from the Heart of Christ on the Cross, on how we can make Lent an occasion that will last through the year and the coming years.

Hello pastor! My first question is how important is Lent for a believer?


That is a great question. While Easter was important when I’m growing up, Lent wasn’t. For many of the people I knew, all Lent meant was cutting out sugar for forty days. Now, as a pastor, husband, and father, I realize a new value of Lent. Lent offers us the opportunity to prepare our hearts as we remember the sacrifice Jesus made for our souls. It helps us slow down and be honest about what we have done and not done, what we have said and not said, what we have thought and not thought. We can take a good look in the mirror and see our sin for what it is. That look reminds us of our need for a savior and builds appreciation and reverence for what he did.
