To Easter and Beyond!

By Kurt Selles

March 30, 2022

Last January, we experienced Jesus while studying the first half of Mark’s gospel. This month, we continue listening to Mark’s gospel as we journey “To Easter and Beyond.” In the first half of the month—leading up to Easter—we are invited to meditate on a selection of stories in Mark, one of the gospel accounts about Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

In the weeks that follow Easter, we will consider the implications of what Jesus has done for us. We will reflect on other New Testament passages that help us understand the meaning of Jesus’ resurrection. In doing so, we will find Jesus revealing himself to be our Savior and calling us to follow him as the resurrected Lord of all.

Rev. Douglas MacLeod has served as a pastor for 37 years with four CRC congregations in Michigan and Iowa. He and Cathy have been married for 42 years and are grateful for each of their three children and their six grandchildren.

As you read the Today devotions during this Lent and Easter season, may you be refreshed, refocused, and renewed in God’s Word!
