The 40 days leading up to the Resurrection has historically been a time of reflection, sacrifice, and drawing near to Jesus in anticipation of what He did for us on the cross over 2,000 years ago. Although it is not a common tradition to celebrate Lent in the Protestant tradition, the days leading up to the celebration of Easter Sunday can a powerful time of reflection, intercession, and movement towards showing and sharing the love of Jesus with a broken and hurting world.
The Billy Graham Center for Evangelism has created a 40-day image-based resource to encourage you to reflect daily on what it means that Jesus was a good news bearer and how we can follow in His footsteps. Each day includes a beautiful image, scripture reference, and reflection item.
By His Wounds the World Is Healed is designed to journey you to a place where, as you encounter Jesus, your heart beats more for those without Jesus and you find yourself engaged more and more in faith conversations. We will post one each day from March 1 – April 16.
