Lent is a season of penitence to prepare for Easter. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6 this year, and runs for forty days (not counting Sundays) until Resurrection Sunday.
Many Christians give up something, like sweets or movies, for Lent. Others fast or abstain from meat on Fridays. Others add extra devotional time or Scripture reading or prayer. I give up my habit of reading an average of a novel a day, abstain from fiction, and read only Christian nonfiction during Lent.
I also add extra Bible reading and write my reflections on each day’s Scripture passages. The following year, I make those meditations available, both in a downloadable PDF document and in daily blog posts.
I invite you to read my daily devotions on my blog each day during Lent or to download Suffering and Salvation in a single file.
Each devotional includes a passage of Scripture (ESV), my meditation, and a prayer.
May these devotions bless you during Lent.
