These Forty Days Lenten Study – Begins March 2
According to the Scriptures, Jesus was tempted during a period of fasting and prayer which was in preparation for Jesus’ public ministry and passion. Throughout the Bible, times of desert preparation often preceded significant ministry. This is one of the reasons we observe the season of Lent as a time for spiritual focus. The rhythms of fasting and feasting, desert and oasis, discipline and joy are not only well known to God’s people but also essential components of spiritual growth.
An excellent way to go deeper in your discipleship, These Forty Days is a simple guide for the reading of Scripture, reflection, prayer, and response. By beginning each day with intention, these devotionals will shape each of your hours with a heightened sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s teaching and guidance.
