Just as Jesus spent forty days in the desert preparing for his ministry, Christians around the world embark on the forty-day journey of Lent to pause and reflect on our profound need for a Savior. Through this practice, we prepare their hearts to more fully rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ at Easter.
To help stay focused in your reflection and preparation during Lent, it can be very helpful to organize your meditation and study around a theme. A podcast Bible study and ebook from Groundwork, called “Words from the Cross,” can you help you do just that. Through the season of Lent, we dwell each week on one of the seven last words Jesus Christ spoke from the cross and reflect on its meaning for our lives today. Meditating on these words is a tradition long practiced by many Christian communities.
You can sign up for the email series, which begins with an introduction on Ash Wednesday. The first episode, “Father, Forgive Them,” will land in your inbox on March 2. You can also download the ebook and get started right away.
