Lent 2024: He Arose From the Dead by Sis. Dorothy Payne Bryan, PH.D.


 “Arise, shine; for thy light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen. . . " 

Isa.25: 8, Isa. 60:1, 3.  



He Arose From the Dead

Jesus became human and our sins were placed on Jesus’ head. It was in His blood that our debt was paid in full. In Romans 8: 11, it is recorded thusly, “But if the same Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead is the same spirit that dwells in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken our mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in us.” 

Therefore, we bless your name Jehovah-Tsidkenu, our righteousness. Thank you for becoming sin for us through the shedding of your blood that we might become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.   Jesus came from heaven to earth, to the cross and back to heaven to save us. Jesus, the son of God, you were obedient to God your Father. Lord, we are thankful that you gave your son Jesus as ransom for us and to bring glory to your name.

Prayer: Father, I thank you for your Son Jesus who died for all our sins, but on the third day He arose from the grave and through his death he saved us.  Lord, through his death old things have passed away and all things become new. Amen 


Lent 2024

We invite you to join us in reflection, meditation and prayer for a season of renewal, repentance and rejoicing from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.

Each day is a reflection representing the thoughts and aspirations of the members and friends of Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church expressing what the season of Lent means to them.  Their wide range of perspectives describe how this time of renewal, repentance and rejoicing has been and will be used to focus on Jesus’ life, crucifixion and resurrection.

Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline.
