#Lent2016, Holy Tuesday

By on March 22, 2016

Text: John 12:1-6, Matthew 26:14-16, Psalms 41

The unanswerable word “Why?!” echoes within my soul as I read the tragic account of the betrayal of Jesus by Judas.

Why?

Judas had spent three years with Jesus! He had seen Him heal bodies, touch broken lives and raise the dead. Judas had heard the Gospel of…

#Lent2016, Holy Monday

By on March 22, 2016

Text: Mark 14:1-9

Jesus loved people. He loved the sick and the lame … the prostitute and children. Jesus loved His band of brothers … the 12 whose lives had become so intrinsically a part of His own. Jesus also loved a particular family who had celebrated with Him, had often…

#Lent2016, Palm Sunday

By on March 22, 2016

Text: Luke 19:28-41, Isaiah 55:6-12

“Hosanna!” was the word that began the most explosive 7 days in all of eternity. Never would there be a week, nor a word, that would so profoundly impact every life in recorded history.

It was Passover week in Jerusalem and nearly 2.5 million people were crowding the…

#Lent2016, Holy Week

By on March 22, 2016

First, I would like to clarify; there are only 40 Days in Lent.

For 2016, all days excluding Sundays from February 10 to Saturday, March 26 is #Lent2016.

I just concluded an inspiring daily devotional courtesy of the Redeemer Presbyterian Church, which I posted on Sundays too – first through my Facebook Profile…

#Lent2016, Day 39

By on March 19, 2016

Text: John 19:1-37

“Day 39: The Cross”

Re-read today’s passage slowly and prayerfully, engaging your imagination as each scene unfolds. What do you see, hear, feel, smell, in each scene? What is all this meant to mean to you? Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you through the story of Christ’s…

#Lent2016, Day 38

By on March 18, 2016

Text: John 13:1-15, Philippians 2:6-7

“Day 38: The Washing”

The NIV translates verse 1: “Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.” In this unexpected act of foot washing, Jesus was communicating something profound about the nature of divine love. Love is…

#Lent2016, Day 37

By on March 17, 2016

Text: Matthew 26:1-5, Matthew 26:14-25

“Day 37: The Plot”

Even when Jesus’ life was slipping away from him, he remained remarkably in control. He predicted his arrest and crucifixion before the religious leaders met to conspire against him. He knew that Judas, one of his trusted apostles, would betray him. How disturbing that…

#Lent2016, Day 36

By on March 16, 2016

Text: Mark 11:15-19, John 2:19-21, Mark 15:38

“Day 36: The Cleansing”

Every year at Passover thousands of Jews came from all over Israel and Judea to offer sacrifices at the temple in Jerusalem. Since many traveled long distances, they often purchased their animal sacrifices in Jerusalem rather than hauling them from home and risking…

#Lent2016, Day 35

By on March 15, 2016

Text: Mark 14:3-9

“Day 35: The Anointing”

“What a waste!” That is the complaint made regarding the woman’s use of her expensive perfume to anoint Jesus. Jesus will have none of it. He finds a purely cost-benefit analysis of our actions to be inadequate and bankrupt. Even though the money from the…

#Lent2014, Day 34

By on March 14, 2016

Text: John 12:20-33, John 1:14, Hebrews 2:10, 1 Peter 1:3-5

“Day 34: The Prediction”

John devotes much of his Gospel to the last six days of Jesus’ life. In John 12, Jesus predicts “what kind of death he was going to die” — one that would loosen Satan’s death grip on the world, raise Jesus…
