The Art of Lent – Day 27, Friday

Here is another message that came to me from the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: The traditional fasts and times of mourning you have kept in early summer, midsummer, autumn, and winter are now ended. They will become festivals of joy and celebration for the people of Judah. So love truth and peace.”

Zechariah 8:18-19 NLT

The Lord promised the people of Judah that their periods of fasting and mourning would be transformed into celebrations. That’s the promise of the resurrection we are preparing our hearts for. We know that God sent hope for the world in the form of a human Jesus to be sacrificed for our sins. We also know that the darkness of his crucifixion was obliterated three days later when he rose from the dead and conquered death forever. Find a few images that symbolize darkness and light and make a collage showing the change from darkness to light we celebrate at Easter.
