Lent is meant to bring us closer to Jesus. But how does this happen? In Journey to the Cross, Paul David Tripp takes us on a 40-day devotional Lenten journey as we reflect on our sin and travel through the sorrows, sufferings, and sacrificial joy of Jesus.

Sit Under the Shadow of the Cross

There are 40 days of devotions in this book, and they all focus on our sin. But they don’t speak on sin in the abstract or theological, but in the everyday and practical implications. Pride, poor attitudes, selfishness, and anger are talked about. And Tripp makes it personal by giving examples from his life and with his family. He writes with sensitivity, but with purpose.

This book takes sin seriously, but its purpose is to offer a solution in Jesus. We are told to sit under the shadow of the cross. We are told to persevere in prayer. As is fitting for Lent, we are asked to fast, make personal sacrifices, examine our idols, and put them to death. This book begs you to take your spiritual life seriously, and it reminds us that getting more of Jesus is always worth it.

Abundant Grace

Each of the 40 devotions opens with short summary sentences, and closes with 3 reflection questions. Interestingly, Bible passages are presented after the devotional read, prompting you with what to look for in the text as well as how to pray. I found this to be an excellent format, as the devotionals serve as introductions to the Biblical text – not meant to replace or supersede God’s Word.

Because each devotion is less than 5 pages in length, Tripp does not waste any words. He cuts straight to the heart and asks direct, pointed questions. Following Jesus takes hard work and determination, with faith that is supplied and fortified by abundant and abounding grace.

Deeper Joy

After the highs of the Christmas season, I often find myself not as excited as I should be for Easter. With this book, Tripp uses the Lenten season to take us low with Jesus on a journey to the cross. By the time Easter arrives, you will find your joy has deepened as your heart is drawn to worship.

I received a media copy of Journey to the Cross and this is my honest review.

Hideaway - #doodlewashJanuary2021 #WorldWatercolorGroup #watercolor #watercolour #bunny

It’s been several days now since my last post, so I figured I’d pop in again and say hello with a little sketch of a wee bunny. For those of who might have missed my previous posts, I’m taking a bit of a break from daily posting after reaching my crazy fun goal of 2,000 consecutive days of sketching stuff! The break is also meant to provide me with a bit of focus while I’m working on writing and…
