2018 Lenten Daily Devotional

A Daily Devotional for the 2018 Lenten Season that explores how Christ Died for Us as well as invites us to pick up our cross and explore how suffering transforms each of us in the image of God.

Lent is a season in the Christian calendar with special emphasis on the sacrifice our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, made for us.  Many of us observe this time with fasting and other spiritual disciplines to foster greater reflection on the life, ministry, suffering, death and resurrection of our Messiah.  As a result, we often become more aware of our sins and shortcomings and experience a greater depth of repentance in our lives.  On Ash Wednesday, we are reminded that “we are dust…and to dust we shall return” as we receive ashes upon our foreheads as a mark of who we are…but also a visible declaration of Whose we are! As we continue on the Lenten journey, let’s set aside time to commune with the God who not only comes to us, but also died for us.

Advent is a time of preparation, expectancy, and reflection. While our days may be filled with shopping for gifts, trimming the tree, attending holiday parties, and planning an elaborate Christmas feast, let us set aside time each day to commune with the the Lord who comes to us.

Advent Daily Devotional


PEACE AND GRACE TO YOU!

Advent is a season to reflect, remember and anticipate. During this time, we remember the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We anticipate the time when He will come again. And, we reflect on the meaning of His coming, past and future, in our lives.

The Advent Calendar begins four Sundays before Christmas, which falls on November 27 this year. Our focus text for the season is the First Letter of John. The call to discipleship is a call to growing deeper in Christ and like Christ. Therefore, “all who have this hope in Him purify themselves.” In other words, the writer emphasizes that the hope we find in Christ should manifest itself in how we live our lives in relation to God and to one another. The gospel is lived. We not only “tell it on the mountain,” we show it in the workplace, the grocery store, and in rush hour traffic. That is a challenging task for all of us, but it is made immeasurably easier when we begin each day devoting it and ourselves to the Lord. In truth, that is the only way we can purify ourselves – by relying on God to do the work in us and having a receptive heart and spirit.
