Life as exiles in the wilderness of this world is not easy or pain-free. We wait and yearn for our real home, the new promised land of heaven. In order to wait well, Jesus’ words say that a good teacher not only brings out new treasures but reminds people of old and rich treasures as well (Matthew 13:52).
This Lenten season, embrace God’s amazing love for us, His baptized children, in new ways. Each week of Lent, journey to concretely see, smell, touch, and taste several biblical elements.
Begin with ashes, then salt, water, light, bread, and finally, palms. Water and blood, wood, fragrant oil are emphasized during the days of Holy Week. On Easter, bring attention to the sweetness of God’s milk and honey. All of these beautiful Old and New Testament elements work to make clear to you God’s eternal love in Christ, fill you with renewed hope, and increase your joy, knowing that because we are His baptized children, God is near to us now.
Fuel congregation members’ Lenten practices with 47 daily devotions which call upon all of the senses to experience God’s love, Jesus’ grace, and guidance from the Holy Spirit in everyday life.
