More to the Easter Story-Lent Devotionals 2019

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6th and will continue for 40 days plus the Sabbath rests. This year, the Lent Devotional Series is entitled “More to the Easter Story” and applies the admonition from Advent (“Just tell My story”) to the Easter story because there’s always more than meets the eye.

Given the retail store displays appearing right after any Valentine’s love for chocolate has grown cold–and gets set up in the Clearance Aisle at 70% off– you’d think that Easter was really all about chicks and bunnies, eggs and candies of varying kinds. But there’s more to the Easter story than a superficial commercialization. You won’t find chicks, bunnies, or candies in this Easter story. There’s an egg, but not for hunting.

Beginning with the time that Jesus set out resolutely for Jerusalem until the empty tomb, there’s so much more to Jesus’ story at the time we call Easter, for Him the Passover. Let’s listen in His own words from the Gospel of Luke (with a few of mine for painting the scene) to let His Word shine.
