Lent 2023 Devotional

New Wine

New Wine always involves a crushing. A death before the new thing. This Lent is all about entering into Our Lord's suffering, sacrifice, and crushing to become New Wine.

In this year's lenten devotional,

Let's contemplate Our Lord's suffering which provides new wine.

We look to the Blessed Trinity who sets the example of suffering for us: the crushing and the pressing and the clarifying that is making new wine.

The crushing and the pressing and clarifying do the same for us, dear friend. They are making us new. You are becoming new wine.

In your suffering, in your pain, in your sorrow, He is making you new.

The Son of God shows us the shape of love.

He offers Himself as a pure sacrifice on behalf of the world, and in the stretching of His arms, we see that true love is always cruciform.

This devotional is going to touch the heart of anyone who feels "crushed in spirit" and in need of purpose, peace, and promise.
This is the most beautiful lent devotional yet! I’m so excited to dive into the stories and scripture. New Wine is just special, I can feel it 🥹🥹🥹🥹
I found something relatable in each woman’s heartfelt story of a cross they carried. It felt like I walked beside them as we together looked towards hope in the Risen Lord.

Our wounds become a place of encounter.

Our brokenness is the place through which He makes Himself present in the world again. Our suffering, redeemed by our yes, draws down all the power of the Crucified One to bless the world and make not only us, but all things, new again.
