Lent is a season of fasting as we prepare for Easter. For 40 days (including 6 Sundays) beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on Palm Sunday, the Church responds to the atoning death of Christ. This is a season of joy and sorrow, eagerly waiting and silently longing, sure hope and battling unbelief. 

As part of Lent, we learn to focus on what matters most during this season of fasting. These devotionals are meant to be read each day in order to help you focus on what matters most -- The grace of God in Jesus Christ for sinners.
