This year, Asheritah Ciuciu’s devotional Uncovering the Love of Jesus is helping us focus, celebrate, and reflect throughout the Easter season, also called “lent.”
Thoroughly grace-filled, Christ-honoring, and Biblical, the devotional provokes thought and praise for all the love Jesus showed us through His perfect life, His sacrifice, and His victory over sin and death.
Some things I appreciate about the devotional include:
Focus on grace, not works; the gospel, not religious structure.
Walks through stories and examples of Jesus’ love throughout Scripture
Call to sacrifice sinful attitudes and habits in order to love others, rather than giving up “stuff”
Concise, creative, and adaptable format for families with or without kids, and individuals
Quotes I appreciated include:
“We are called to love…not so they will apologize to us. Not so they will see how spiritual we are in loving them even though they’ve wronged us. But to love them simply so they will experience God’s love anew.”
“Personal relationships with messy people is the way of love.”
“Jesus doesn’t require steadfast faith to ensure His steadfast love.”
If you’d like to marvel, treasure, and explore Jesus’ remarkable love throughout the Easter season, I recommend this devotional.
