Description

What if you fasted regret? What if your friends fasted comparison? What if your generation fasted escapism? What if your community fasted spectatorship? Trigger a spiritual revolution with this daily devotional for Lent.

Decrease life's unnecessary details and increase your relationship with the Lord so you can live in awe of Christ's resurrection! 40 Days of Decrease is a guide for those hungering for a fresh Lenten/Easter experience. Dr. Alicia Britt Chole guides you through a study of Jesus' uncommon and uncomfortable call to abandon the world's illusions, embrace His kingdom's realities, and journey cross-ward and beyond.

Containing readings, refection questions, daily fasts, ancient quotes, and more, each day offers a meaningful consideration of Jesus' journey and then invites you into a daily fast of heart-clutter-the stuff that sticks to your soul and weighs you down. You can begin your forty-day journey any time of the year, but you may find it especially meaningful as a Lenten preparation to live in awe of Jesus' resurrection.

Each daily, 1000-word entry includes a:



Devotion based on Jesus' life
Reflection question to guide journaling or group discussion
Heart fast to inspire a tangible response
Thought-provoking Lenten quote
Optional sidebar into the historical development of Lent
Suggested reading that takes you from John 12 to John 21
Journaling space for reflection

In the same way self cannot satisfy self no matter how long it feasts, self cannot starve self no matter how long it fasts. Decrease-like increase-is only holy when its destination is love. Dare to live awed by Christ's resurrection!
