40 Days of Promise – A Lenten Devotional

written by The Reverend Mike Berry


Barely a month into 2021, and it seems we are living in a time of such great intensity that it echoes the days of Acts. But we must not Fear! For the God of the apostles, is our God today, and He isn’t finished writing our story.

It would be easy to despair, after months of so much trial and error, but as the beloved Late Reverend Mike Berry wrote on day 1 of this Lenten devotional,

” As we begin the season of Lent, ours is not so much the need to take inventory of our shortcomings. It is actually easy to get enamored by our failings. It is also easy to become self-loathing when considering the shortfall of our actions. This is a time of reflection and remembering. We focus on the grace that God has given to us in that “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

So, in the next 40 days, as we approach the miraculous wonder of the Resurrection, let us empty ourselves of every burden, every distraction, every weight that holds us down, and run to the cross-and remember.

Remember what Christ did.

Remember what He said.

And remember that though the night is oh so dark – Sunday IS coming.
