We must "love the Lord our God with the whole heart" (Mt 22:37). His righteousness.

    bruce-----mark 9:28 and when HE was come into the house HIS disciples asked HIM privately why could not we cast him out *****MARK 9:29 AND HE SAID UNTO THEM THIS KIND CAN COME FORTH BY NOTHING BUT BY PRAYER AND FASTING*****JOHN 5:29 AND SHALL COME FORTH THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE AND THEY THAT HAVE DONE EVIL UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF DAMNATION
  • A disciple
    With regard to one of the main points in this part of the Sermon; it is the hidden man of the heart that we bring before God with our prayers, fastings, and acts of mercy toward others. For this reason I think that a Church Ritual which everyone is compelled to perform, because it was a tradition started long ago, misses entirely what the Lord teaches us. Our religion is not for appearance to men.

    5757:Yes, it is. You're right lent is not in the Bible. There is only one thing we could give up that The Lord desires of us. "Our Heart" We will be made new.2Corinthians 5:17/Washed Revelation1:5/ You will beBaptized with The Holy Ghost:Matthew 3:11. / When: John 6:44, 1 John 1:9. / Which way is Right? Matthew 7:13-14.

    Isn't let more a Catholic thing? Not sure, but I agree that I don't remember lent being taught in bible or by Christ himself. Either way, we're not saved by works. Fasting and prayer, daily bible reading, time spent with God is a personal and individual walk. Although it is good too be in fellowship with like minded believers. To come together in prayer and (fast When GOD Desires it of you).

    Little children: if the wicked which are, believe that I walked not in their united states: then why do they work so hard and so wickedly and so diligently to cover up my tracks and memorials even to this very day? Why do the wicked stand at the graves of the prophets calling them Unknown while placing their wreath in the sight of men? If those soldiers of God were Unknown, then why did they delight in capturing and killing them: and how can they be Unknown when GOD has not forgotten them? And why do the soldiers always guard the tombs filled with marble when they are empty of men? With whom do they plan to fill them?
