Devo of the Week: Joel 2:11-13

“Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Modern Christians often expect God’s love to be found in celebrative music, positive preaching and expressive emotions.  What is the role of fasting, weeping, and mourning in experiencing God’s love?  When was the last time you fasted? What part do weeping and mourning play in your prayer life?  We thank you the “even now” you offer us is the invitation to return to you with all our heart. Give us grace to accept your invitation. Amen.
