Lenten Devotional - March 28

Scripture: Psalm 130

Reflection: Lent is the season that we Christians remember that we are sinful people in need of repentance.  For many we do not need a special season for this.  We remind ourselves and face our sins all year long.  In todays reading the Psalmist is crying out to the Lord for mercy, saying he is deep in sin and looking for God’s forgiveness.  But then he proclaims that God is a God of forgiveness and mercy.  You can feel peace coming upon the psalmist, and I hope you, as you read these words, see that God not only promises forgiveness but gives it to those that seek him.

As we go throughout the season of Lent we admit our sins to God and seek his forgiveness, but what about with each other?  Just as the Psalmist felt separation from God because of sin, sin and unforgiveness can cause Christians to be separated from each other and, thus, keep us from full communion with our Lord.  In the same way the Psalmist felt anxiety and hopelessness about being separated from God due to sin, we can feel that same pain because of separations from others.  Forgiving and seeking forgiveness is not always easy but it can be freeing, not just for you but the other person as well.  Sometimes it is just as hard to accept the forgiveness as it is to give it, but the one who is seeking forgiveness may need it from you to free themselves so that they may be able to get closer not just with you but also God.  Who is it that you need to forgive?  Who do you need forgiveness from?  Lent is a good season to forgive and accept forgiveness.

Breath Prayer: Forgive me O God.

Prayer Emphasis: Someone I feel has wronged me.

Daily Challenge: Seek forgiveness or forgive.
