Overview

Call Him Savior examines the Revised Common Lectionary Bible readings for Lent. A key part of living and passing on the faith is to hear and remember the stories of the Lenten season. It is tempting to bypass the somber notes of Lent and rush straight from Ash Wednesday to Easter morning. “Alleluias” sing easier than “Were you there when they crucified my Lord?” Yet the impact of an empty tomb is most fully experienced when witnessed against the passion of Jesus. In this study, you are offered the opportunity to reflect on Jesus as Savior. You will remember the power and the sacrifice of God’s love through the Incarnation of Jesus and His suffering and death on the cross. Celebrate the gift of salvation and new life in the resurrection and remember these stories, while reclaiming what it means to call Jesus your Savior.

An easy-to-use seven-session leader’s guide written by Nan Duerling is available for use in Sunday school classes or other small groups.
