By His Wounds We Are Healed - Adult Devotional

The innocent Son of God had no sins of his own for which he deserved to die, yet his enemies falsely accused him of violating every commandment of God. In these daily devotions for Lent by Paul Scheidt, we will see that it was our sin, our disobedience that Jesus bore in his body on the cross. The Lord laid on him “the iniquity of us all.” Jesus suffered the penalty of death in our place, and “by his wounds we are healed.”

The See-SON of Lent: Daily Devotions for Teens & Young Adults

Lent is more than a season; it’s a SEE-Son! It’s time to open our eyes to the loving sacrifice made by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It’s time to open our hearts to his forgiveness and grace. It’s time to open our mouths, ears and arms to those around us in Christ’s name. This eye-opening booklet of daily devotions brings the meaning of Lent to light. With eyes fixed on Jesus’ cross, we look up and out to the world around us.
