A HOLY WEEK DEVOTIONAL
Please enjoy this Biblical Introduction to the Seven Sayings of Jesus from the Cross. Beginning Palm Sunday through Resurrection Sunday, we will reflect upon the seven sayings of Jesus from the Cross which are:
· “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34
· “Today shalt thou be with Me in paradise.” Luke 23-44
· “Woman behold your Son.” John 19:26
· “My, God, my God, why has Thou forsaken Me?” Mark 15:34
· “I thirst.” John 19:28
· “It is finished.” John 19:30
· “Father, into Thy hands I commend My spirit.” Luke 23:46
The dying words of any man are considered to be spoken in truth. These words convey much about the purpose and mission of the individual. What is on the mind of a dying person boldly proclaims what is of primary importance to the individual in this crucial moment. These words also give closure, and the peace that will come from expressing the completeness contained in these words. In these last words, the individual can make known their needs, and suffering and also their acceptance that the end of life is here.
How much more important are the words of Jesus that He gives us from the Cross? What does He reveal about Himself? What is important to Him? And what are the truths we find illustrated here of His redemptive mission of fallen man?
Will you set apart sacred time during Holy Week as we reflect and pray as we continue our journey toward the celebration of our Resurrected Lord and Savior? Please join with Equip and others as we place a special focus upon Holy Week as we go deeper in these profound sayings of Christ upon the cross of our redemption.
This daily Equip Devotional has been provided by Rev. Marie Parma as we take time this Holy season in anticipation of the celebration of Resurrection Sunday.
Let us pray…
