Devotions for Lent

Lent is a time for reflection as we think about and prepare for the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. A Lenten devotional – Seeking: Honest Questions for Deeper Faith – asks us to consider a different question for each week of Lent. For instance, the first week’s question is “Who do you listen to?” Then, through familiar Bible stories such as Jesus’ temptation by Satan in the wilderness and an Old Testament story of Adam and Eve deciding to disobey God, the authors explore how those stories might be relevant to us in today’s world. They ask us to look inside ourselves and experience the places where decisions might pull us in different directions.

The authors and illustrators of this devotional, created by A Sanctified Art, use multiple ways to engage us as we ponder the meaning of scripture for our own journey of faith. They follow some stories through Jesus’ journey during his ministry, his crucifixion, and his resurrection, asking us what those stories teach us as we live our daily lives and as we focus on the passion of Christ during Lent.

During Lent, this devotional will be helpful to us. And the sermon series, worship music, children’s devotional, and small group discussions will also provide opportunities for us to hear and reflect on God’s sacrificial love for us and God’s call for our response. May your participation enrich you.
