Join us for our six-part Bible Study series, Sealed: An Easter Devotion, looking at what was sealed and established in Jesus' journey to the cross, through his death and resurrection and into eternity. The study is available to view online, on social media or freely printable for all in multiple sizes. It is available to use for anyone seeking to encounter Christ.
‘Who can read history or contemplate the experience of humanity at this present time, without realising that it needs a Saviour...?’ - Catherine Booth, co-founder of The Salvation Army (Popular Christianity, 1904)
This six-part devotional was written by Mission Leader Rosy Keane of The Salvation Army Women's Ministries of New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa amid the COVID-19 crisis and lockdowns in 2020. Sealed: An Easter Devotion is a good way to maintain community over Easter when many may not attend church but still be seeking connection.
We have provided notes pages so you can record your responses to each study, with the hope of sharing reflections with others. Complete as little or as much of each study as is helpful for you. Consider printing the booklet for those who cannot access the internet and let them know your intention to meet together to discuss the study together. This may decrease feelings of isolation and increase our spiritual connection in these trying times.
You are invited to share your reflections with our online social community on Facebook, and Instagram: @salvationarmy.wm
The word ‘seal’ means to establish or secure something definitively. In the same manner, Sealed: An Easter Devotion will explore all that was established and secured through the six themes.
We have multiple options for doing the devotion together:
Throughout Sealed: An Easter Devotion, there are creative writing prompts for those who wish to explore the text further. We invite you to try your hand at these and let God surprise you with what comes out. There are also creative poetry and spoken word (performance poetry) pieces throughout the series, written by Salvationist women in our community. Read these and hear the way Holy Spirit breathes life through each of us, ministering in new ways through our voices and God's work.
