Lent Devotions

It is written.

Written by Sarah Collin

I am a big fan of historical fiction. Over the years I have made my way through Philippa Gregory’s series on the wives of Henry VIII and am currently in the final chapters of his final wife;a wife who worked with Henry VIII on the reformation of the church, which saw the translation of the bible into English so that every day people like me could read it, think for myself and have a personal faith directly with a Father in heaven who loves me, champions me. Imagine not being able to read the bible?? In the grand arc of time, a few hundred years written in plain English is hardly any time at all. But I can read of a God who longs for companionship with me. Find me a protagonist in the bible who hasn’t had a struggle, who hasn’t wrestled with God, who hasn’t sinned, but has always ultimately found grace, mercy and extravagant love from their Father in heaven. It is written, free and open for me to read. He calls out, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” (Rev 3:20)
