Lent Devotional • Day 32

Saturday, The Fourth Week of Lent (Mar. 20)

Celebrate Your Healing

Narrated by Yvonne Wilson

“Bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.” And they began to celebrate. Luke 15:23-24

Our sins are not minor missteps. [hey are toxic, terminal; every sin turns us away from God and leads to death. God’s grace, however, is truly amazing; Jesus took our place in death, healing us by his wounds and filling us with new life. It’s free; it’s a gift; it’s grace!

Celebrate your healing by living in grace, by giving as freely as you have received. Love as you have been loved; forgive as you have been forgiven. Rejoice today, no matter what cloud darkens your horizon, for you are healed and you have new life today and for eternity. Celebrate!

REFLECT: Take time to celebrate the goodness of God’s grace.

PRAY: Turn my eyes to the cross of Jesus, gracious Father. Heal my sinfulness by your grace. Amen.
