Not only is the season of Lent a preparation for the resurrection of Jesus, it is also a reminder for us to examine our lives and to make the needed changes in order for us to become like Jesus. Lent asks us to repent and to change our hearts and lives. Lent asks us to give up the things that keep us from being like Christ. In this passage in Luke, Jesus challenges the religious leaders of his day to examine their intentions. Are they willing to see Jesus for who he is, even if it costs them something about how they understand their religion and faith to work? As we consider this story as religious people, we will ask ourselves what are the things in our own lives that may keep us from being like Jesus—how can we give those things up during these weeks of preparation?
