Grace Day

Open Your Bible

1 Peter 2:24

Lent is a season where we reflect on the depth of our sin and embrace the hope and strength found only in the cross of Christ. We seek unhurried moments of quiet to read Scripture, pray, confess, and repent. Take some time today to catch up on your reading, make space for prayer, and rest in God’s presence.

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree; so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
—1 Peter 2:24

    I can say the same thing. I don’t want to rush. I’m just so grateful that God is able to meet us where we are.

  4. Becky Ryden says:

    Our failures can be the weeds that so easily entangle. Praying we can all be set free which was the purpose of the cross all along.

  5. Linda Fenwick says:

    I am very far behind on my reading but can’t make myself rush to catch up. When I read scripture I want to go slow and try to absorb the message and meaning of everything.

    “A stone of stumbling,
    and a rock of offense.”

  9. Terany Garnett says:

    I found time to rest in His word and yet I struggle to find words to pray. I want to cry all the time and my emotions are overwhelming but reading scripture for 30 minutes has helped me love more and be more generous with others.

    Amen ♥️

  11. Patience Maposa says:

    Amen and thank you❤️

  12. Janice Milley says:

    Somehow I missed all the posts from yesterday and saw how many responses you were getting. I went back to review and boy, it’s just what I needed to hear. Thank you for reminding me that I am forgiven for my sins. I can walk free in the knowledge of Christ loving me and living within me.

  14. Maati says:

    I was falling behind on my readings and writings, and once I finished yesterday’s summaries today, I came late tonight to finally get started on this day’s word to be met with this.
    I really feel validated and amazed that catching up is exactly what I did today!
    These readings are difficult (and a first read for me as a new believer in Christ) and you perfectly capture that in your responses. So grateful we are all walking together! Beautifully written. Thank you for what you do in Jesus name!!

  15. Jennifer Anapol says:

    I love that we have been saved from our sins, so that we can live a new life. We have been saved for a purpose. ❤️

  16. Jennifer Anapol says:

    Thank you for that reminder Churchmouse!

  17. Mercy says:

    Amen. Thanks be to God for paying the highest bid for us. He thinks we are worth that much. Thank you Lord for your everlasting love and enduring faithfulness. Have a wonderful weekend my dear sisters across the pond. Hugs to you all.

  18. Victoria E says:

    Amen Churchmouse thank you for that post. I needed that and the verse today, they are like a balm for my soul. Thank you all for your continued prayers, our countdown until we see this miracle God has done for us face to face continues !

  19. Yolanda Botello says:

    Amen! Thank you Jesus for your unconditional love! I don’t deserve it, but I want to receive it again and again especially when I feel unworthy… the word “tree” stood out to me a lot this time reading this verse and it took me to the beginning in Genesis with Adam and Eve… even then, He forgave and gently welcomed not only confession and repentance, but life with God again…

  20. Mitzi White says:


  21. Chris S says:

    I really want to take the 3-4 hours to read through Ezekiel!!

  24. Amy Hughes says:

    Amen ♥️

  25. Jennifer Loves Jesus says:

    Jesus suffered with a quietness and gentle spirit. When He could have smite, He saved. God absorbed the wrath we deserve upon Himself. In the chaos and loudness of shouts accusing Him in His innocence, He silently bore witness for our sakes. He was crushed to bear the healing balm of salvation for His people. For me. For you. I can bear my own suffering and let the work of God have His way to bring goodness. I know He will because He already has.

    1 Peter 2:24 “…By His wounds you have been healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

    He was pierced
    Because of our wrongs
    He made all things right
    For Him my soul longs
    For healing He suffered
    For my heart He came
    In the light of this truth
    I will never be the same
    While I was in sin
    He made a way out
    His commitment to love
    Fills me with praises and shouts!


    Happy Grace Day She’s, love to you all! May God bless You with His peace today.

  26. Mari V says:

    Dear Churchmouse, this is exactly what I needed to hear this morning.

  27. Traci Gendron says:

    It saddens me that so many don’t know about this wonderfully magnificent gift from Jesus. Reading today’s verse slowly and a few times, it really speaks of so much love that He bore our sins. He hung on a cross for us.

    Still pondering today, yesterdays reading – that was some heavy stuff!…”My sin oh the bliss of this glorious thought, my sin not in part but the whole — was nailed to the cross and I bear it no more, praise the LORD, praise the LORD oh my soul”!! ~ It Is Well by Horatio Spafford

    A blessed Saturday to you all!

  36. Churchmouse says:

    It is good to understand both the gravity of our sin and the greatness of our God in forgiving our sin. I was counseled once to keep a short list of my sins. To dwell too long on past sins already confessed is not healthy nor Biblical. Repent and fully accept God’s forgiveness. To Him, those sins no longer exist. My evening prayers are a review of my day, asking the Lord to reveal to me any sin I may have committed by omission or commission. He is faithful to remind me to make amends. I accept His forgiveness and I go to sleep. When I awake, it’s a new day with a clean slate. Satan tries to discourage and dishearten my by resurrecting my past failures but he is most definitely not in the resurrecting business. Only God does that. My sins are forgiven and are as far away as the east is from the west. I rest in the Truth.

    Good Morning She’s!

    I am so greateful to the SRT staff and writers, this is a good study for Lent, leading up to the ONE thing that matters most- The Cross. Thank you God for sending your Son for us, to cleanse us, to redeem us, to arise us anew. May we use this amazing, overwhelming blessing to transfer on our hearts and minds, to live every day better and better for you Lord. Help us to wear our faith, share our faith, and stay straight on the narrow path. Help us to give up in idols blocking our path, you know our hearts Lord. Bless us Lord to live in your blessings, to have your everlasting peace- in our circumstances, in our sadness, in our anxieties and fears, Lord, you are the one thing, the true One that can deliver us!
    Bless all these dear sisters Lord, that want to be better, can be better in You, in the midst of all our battles, big and small- we give them to you Lord! Amen and Amen.

    This verse reminds of the phrase often used in the ceremony of baptism from Romans 6:4, “raised to walk in newness of life!” Thank you, Jesus!

  52. Kelly (NEO) says:

    The more we read about God’s judgment, the more grateful we should be for the cross and the indwelling Spirit’s help to keep us from sin.
