Lenten Devotional: March 20, 2024

by Lori Jukes

The First Day of Spring

“See! The winter is past;

the rains are over and gone.

Flowers appear on the earth;

the season of singing has come,

the cooing of doves

is heard in our land.

The fig tree forms its early fruit;

the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.

Arise, come, my darling;

my beautiful one, come with me.”


Today is the first day of spring. It is a time of renewal after winter. Everything is coming back to life after being dormant for a while. It reminds me of when I was in youth group. We would sing, "Pass It On" at the end of our time together as a reminder to spread God's love with everyone. Here is one of the verses of that song:

What a wondrous time is spring

When all the trees are budding

The birds begin to sing

The flowers start their blooming

That's how it is with God's love

Once you've experienced it

You want to sing

It's fresh like spring

You want to pass it on.


My challenge to you this Lenten season is this: when you experience God's love in this time of renewal, simply "Pass It On."
