Lenten Devotional - Day Twenty-Two

Day 22:

Read: Psalm 22

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!
