Home > Lenten Devotional 2019
The season of Lent has typically held a special place in the life of the Church. Beginning with Ash Wednesday and culminating in the events of Holy Week, Lent is an invitation to focus on what is central to our faith. It has also become a time for personal and spiritual reflection on who we are as God’s people and on what God has given us so graciously in Christ.
The season of Lent begins next week on Ash Wednesday. As we have done in the past, the NALC is excited to provide you with this year’s I am God – You are my People Lenten devotional, prepared by the Rev. Paull Spring, NALC bishop emeritus and the Rev. Dr. Gemechis Buba, NALC assistant to the bishop for missions. The devotional is centered on two themes. The first is a selection of biblical passages in which God is addressed as the “Great I Am.” The second is a selection of passages in which we are addressed as God’s people, “You are…”

It is our hope that, as we reflect on these passages from God’s Word, our faith in God may be strengthened and our commitment to His Word renewed.

It is also our prayer that, as we move from Ash Wednesday to Holy Week, we may join the two disciples of Jesus as they cried out, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?” (Luke 24:32 ESV).
