Day 1 – The Sorrow of Jesus

Today’s Reading: Mark 14:32-34Today’s Reference: Hebrews 2:17 “Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.” Here in Gethsemane, we have the gift of seeing Jesus’ humanity most clearly. He was “greatly distressed and troubled,” going through emotional turbulence so painful He couldn’t even stand up under it. He knew He was about to have the full wrath of God unleashed upon Him because of … Read More >

Day 3 – The Submission of Jesus

Today’s Reading: Mark 14:35-36Today’s Reference: 1 Peter 4:13 “But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” Humanly speaking, Jesus didn’t want to die on the Cross. Despite His fears, He still said to His Father, “Not what I will, but what You will.” Sometimes we have to do the will of God whether we like it or not. We live in a society where “feeling bad” is a sin we must avoid at all costs. But Jesus shows us that’s not God’s … Read More >

Day 5 – Judas: Grieved to Death

Today’s Reading: Matthew 27:3-10Today’s Reference: 2 Corinthians 7:10 “For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.” Judas knew he’d done wrong—we always do, don’t we? So he brought the silver back to the chief priests and elders out of guilt. Notice that these men, who were so friendly when he could be of use to them, now said, “What’s that to us?” and sent him away still full of remorse. Judas responded to his sorrow in the wrong way. If all we do with our sin … Read More >

Day 7 – The Justice of Man

Today’s Reading: John 18:12 - 19:16Today’s Reference: 1 Peter 2:23 “When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly.” Jesus had six trials before His Crucifixion, and not one of them was fair. Hired witnesses, violence, judges doing double-duty as prosecutors…never has the phrase “travesty of justice” been more true. How did He respond? He knew He would never have a fair trial; a fair trial would never have condemned Him to death. But He was willing to trust … Read More >

Day 9 – Father, Forgive

Today’s Reading: Luke 23:32-38Today’s Reference: Luke 17:4 “If he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.” “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” How could He even say it? With nails piercing His hands and feet, hanging on the Cross with His lungs straining for air…how could that be the first thing that came to His mind? The Greek text implies He didn’t just say it once, He repeated it over and over. “Father, forgive them, forgive … Read More >

For Us

Beginning March 7, join us for a series of 30 devotionals: For Us—Meditations at the Foot of the Cross. “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins… If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.”—1 Corinthians 15:17,19 That’s right, he said pitied. If Christ did not die on the Cross and rise again, we as Christians are in the sad position of being aware of the severity of our sin… and having no remedy for it … Read More >

Day 2 – The Plea of Jesus

Today’s Reading: Mark 14:35-36Today’s Reference: Hebrews 12:1b-2 “…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”  The Jews and Romans crucified Jesus. He laid down His life for our sin. But ultimately, God was responsible for the death of Jesus. God could have sent legions of angels to “remove the cup” and rescue Jesus—but … Read More >

Day 4 – Judas: Lover of Money

Today’s Reading: Matthew 26:6-16Today’s Reference: Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the others, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Why did Judas betray Jesus? For three years he was a full-fledged disciple, doing miracles, preaching to the people. He appeared to love Jesus. He probably even thought he loved Jesus. But he loved money more, and when “crunch time” came, he chose his greater love…thirty pieces of silver. What a worthless exchange for … Read More >

Day 6 – The Most Spectacular Sin

Today’s Reading: Mark 14:41-46Today’s Reference: Romans 8:1-2 “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.” It was the most spectacular sin in history, betraying the Messiah to a cruel death. As we saw yesterday, Judas responded with worldly sorrow that led to death, both physical and everlasting. But could he have been forgiven if he’d taken his guilt to Jesus instead of to men? Yes. Maybe there’s a sin … Read More >

Day 8 – Those Who Mean Evil

Today’s Reading: Acts 2:22-24Today’s Reference: Genesis 50:20 “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.”   Jesus’ trials were unjust, but they weren’t about to derail God’s plan. In fact, God used injustice to get Jesus crucified. Now, that’s not to say injustice is ever a good thing; indeed if we find it in ourselves, we must repent immediately. Like Judas, woe to those people who were Satan’s tools in the death of Christ! But … Read More >
