Joni and Friends Daily Devotional 14th March 2022 Monday Message

TOPIC: Lent

SCRIPTURE: “’ Even now,’ declares the Lord, ‘return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.’ Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.” -Joel 2:12-13

MESSAGE

The season of Lent can be summed up in one word: repentance. That’s why my best companion during Lent is my old Book of Common Prayer. Just listen to the Collect for the beginning of Lent:

Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all those who are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

If that prayer sounds a bit out of fashion, it may be we aren’t reminded often enough that our sin is a stinking offense to God; that we were once poor and miserable sinners plucked out of a miry pit. As an old Puritan once advised, “Sit close to self-scrutiny.” It’s the best way to fully appreciate what Jesus accomplished for us on the cross.

The season of Lent is a time of soul-searching preparation before the celebration of Resurrection day. Only an honest view of our sin will give us a full appreciation of God’s mercy. Only when we understand how lost humankind really is, do we then grasp how great is our salvation.

Remember, Christ did not simply die for the general sins of the world, He died specifically for your specific sin.

Father of all mercy, help me to understand Your message to me today from Joel 2:12-13. And if I’m dulled to the offense of my sin, help me to “worthily lament.” Bless You for… forgiveness!
