1 & 2 Chronicles: Your People Forever (Lent 2023)

A 49 Day Reading Plan
Plan Overview

The season of Lent is a time to prepare our hearts to let the fullness of Easter take hold of us. The books of 1 & 2 Chronicles model this rhythm of reflection, looking back to the beginnings of God’s people and the highs and lows of their faithfulness and disobedience. These historical books ground God’s people in what has always been true of God and what is true of His people, calling them to center their lives on the worship of the God who reigns above every dynasty and whose kingdom will outlast every worldly power. Join us in this seven-week Lenten study as we journey through the history of God’s people in 1 & 2 Chronicles, rejoicing in the faithfulness of a God who keeps His promises to a wayward people from generation to generation. Through reading these books of Old Testament history, followed by Holy Week readings, we make our way to the cross and the empty tomb with a renewed sense of our risen King.
