I’m not Catholic, so I didn’t grow up celebrating Lent. But I do love the idea of focusing my heart and attention on Christ during this season of the year. Which is why I designed this Dividing His Garments Coloring Page. It’s also why I wrote Because He Lives, the devotional journal where this printable was originally published.
The coloring page features some gorgeous vintage artwork along with John 19:24, the passage where the soldiers discuss what to do with Christ’s clothing.
“Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.” This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said, “They divided my clothes among them & cast lots for my garment.” So this is what the soldiers did.
The scripture reference that was being fulfilled can be found in Psalm 22:18 — yet another Old Testament prophecy that was beautifully fulfilled in Christ.
