EASTER PRAYER & FASTING
The cross of Jesus Christ is the focal point of all human history. It is the place where God and sinners are reconciled. The cross is also the place where two seemingly irreconcilable things have been brought together: the love of God and the justice of God. The love of God desires the salvation of sinners, while the justice of God demands their condemnation. How can love and justice meet together? The answer is, Jesus’ love at the cross. The cross reveals the great heart of God, and that heart is filled with love.
Over the next ten (10) days, we invite you to join us on a spiritual journey to Easter with prayer and fasting. Each day there is something for us to reflect on life application as we think on “Love at the Cross”. May God enrich and bless your heart during this season of prayer and fasting.
