Day 20 – The Curtain’s Closed

Matt. 27:59-60 – “And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud and placed it in his new tomb…”   It’s hard to hold out for a miracle. It’s tough to wait on God’s divine timing. It’s trying to believe what God said when the avenue for your miracle lays dead. […]

Day 19 – A Bad/Good Friday

John 19:16 – “Then Pilate turned Jesus over to them to be crucified.”   One of the hardest days recorded in human history. The day the Son of God gave His life for all humanity. It’s easy to take one’s life, but it’s not so easy to give one’s life. A life that died for […]

Day 18 – Giving Thanks

Matt. 26:26-28 – “As they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take eat; this is My body. Then He took a cup, and after giving thanks, He gave it to them and said, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of […]

Day 17 – A Quiet Hump Day

Matt. 26:1 – “When Jesus finished saying all these things, He told His disciples, “You know the Passover takes place after two days…”   In His final days here on the earth, Christ is at the midpoint of His last week. Our culture looks at the week and says that Wednesday is our midpoint day. […]

Day 16 – Jesus Cried Out

John 12:44 – “Jesus cried out, “The one who believes in me believes not in Me, but in the Him who sent Me.”   No matter who tries to describe it, no one can clearly articulate it to the degree that it deserves. I’m talking about the Passion of Christ. A previous (verse 37) gives […]

Day 15 – Kill Lazarus

John 12:10 – “But the chief priest has decided to kill Lazarus also.”   I know Palm Sunday was yesterday, but I felt like I needed to come back to this. Frustration is an indication of something we’re unhappy about. The Pharisees were very frustrated. They tried every which way to stop Christ and His […]

Day 14 – Mover’s and Shaker’s

Matt.21:10 – “And when He came into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?”   The other three Gospel writers also record His entry into Jerusalem, but only Matthew records “…all the city was moved…” The Greek word used to describe move is a seed. A small but powerful word. It means […]

Day 13 – Divine Planning

Luke 19:31 – “If anyone asks, ‘Why are you untying that colt?’ just say, ‘The Lord needs it.’”   God uses the most simple, yet the most powerful, ways to help us see Who He is and what He can do. Jesus is preparing to go into Jerusalem. The entrance will be amazing. He must […]

Day 12 – Be Real

Matt.20:22 – “You don’t know what you are asking…”   It’s an odd scene. A mother with her two sons in the background. She kneels at the feet of Christ. As she kneels, she offers up a request. “Promise, my two sons may sit with you on your right and left, in your kingdom.” Jesus […]

Day 11 – Lighten the Load

Luke 12:15 – “’s life is not in the abundance of his possessions.”   Simple is better. Less is more. Both are sayings I’m sure you’ve heard before. What do they mean in an age of accumulation? We have an affection for stuff. An attraction for stuff. The passing of loved ones has never been […]
