My rating: 4 of 5 stars

During Lent we renew our sense of God’s presence.

A devotion for each day of Lent to remind us the cost of Christ salvation for us. It is a time many will deny a habit that takes away our dependence on Christ and the work he has done. It is a time to examine our heart. It is also a time to break down barriers that we have put up in our relationship with others and God as well due to pride, fear, and anxiety. It is resting in the righteousness of Christ that we may share his righteousness with others.

Each day’s devotion starts with the Old Testament and the New Testament reading. Each reading takes about 10 minutes and ends with a prayer and application to dig deeper.

The devotion is being with Jesus so that we can love others as He as loved us. It is a time of healing those parts that make it difficult to trust and love. You can’t have love without trust and you can’t have trust without love. Lent is rediscovering how Christ rescued us and how we must be on mission to show the rescue of Christ.

The devotional was great insight for our reflection of Lent and one that I invite others to share.

A Special Thank you to Westminster John Knox Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
