Singing with the Exiles Lenten Devotional
Lent is a penitential season during which God’s baptized people celebrate their Baptism through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the true and only Savior, the one foretold by God’s prophet, and the only one who can restore humankind to a relationship of life with God through His suffering and death. Stay in God's Word every day during Lent with Singing with the Exiles: Daily Devotions.
About the Theme
The inspiration for the theme is drawn from Concordia Commentary Isaiah 40–55 by Dr. R. Reed Lessing. Although Isaiah pulsates with richness and depth, chapters 40–55 contains some of the best-known, most-cherished, and theologically significant texts in the Bible. These chapters teach an orientation to the Lord and the world that Jesus endorsed, sharpened, and laid as the foundation for the Christian Church.
