2009 Lenten Devotional and Prayer Guide

April 5

 

To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.” (1 Peter 2:21)

 

Yes! We were called to be Christ’s followers, to be his chosen people! It sure sounds great, but (YOWZERS) what a tough job. Kermit the Frog says “It’s not easy being green,” and I think he is right. It is not always easy to be a good Christian following in Jesus’ enormous foot steps, but God the Father just asks that we try, truly try with all we have. If we give Him that effort, He will lead us. What could be better?  [Written by: Billie]

“But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by His wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

I will never really understand what Jesus went though on the cross for me: the suffering, shame and scoffing. But, hallelujah for the victory of the cross and that Jesus is at the right hand of God, waiting for me. [Written by: Dawn]
