Lenten Devotional - Day Twenty-Two

Day 22:

Read: Psalm 22


Think: While Jesus was on the cross, He quoted what David said in Psalm 22:1. When Jesus died, He became full of our sin. Sin separates from God. So, Jesus was separated for a moment from His Father, so that we wouldn’t have to be forever. But death couldn’t hold Jesus in the grave. Resurrection was coming. Take some time to think about how Jesus took your punishment of separation from God. Dwell for a moment on how much He proved His love for you in that moment.


Pray: Thank you, Jesus, for taking my separation! Hallelujah! I can be close to you, God! Let me live in light of your death and resurrection. I am forgiven and free in you!


Apply: Look up “The Story” at http://viewthestory.com/ Read through it or watch it and let God speak to you about the gospel. Do you have a peer or colleague who doesn’t know the S

tory? See if they’d be willing to watch the brief video with you, then invite them to church.
