Journey to the Cross: Day 7: Saturday

Holy Saturday….Black Saturday…. On our journey with Jesus we come to Saturday, which very well would have been the most hopeless day for those who loved and followed Jesus.  Yes, Good Friday was bad, but I believe deep down Jesus followers believed He would somehow take Himself off the cross.  Their hope is now shattered. Do you think as they gathered a mourned together some … Continue reading Journey to the Cross: Day 7: Saturday

Journey to the Cross: Day 6: Good Friday

Today, this Good Friday, the question on my heart, “Does Good Friday even matter to the Church anymore?” This may seem harsh…contrite…ridiculous…but is there any truth here? Has a celebration/remembrance of Good Friday become some unnecessary “religious” ritual?  Have we bought into this lie? Remember, this my friends…without the cross, without Jesus’ death, there is no resurrection.  There is no atonement for our sins.  There … Continue reading Journey to the Cross: Day 6: Good Friday

Today, Wednesday, is a little bit lighter for Jesus.  For a run down on what was done this day, take a look at Mark 14: 1-9: 14 After two days it … Continue reading Journey To The Cross: Day 4: Holy Wednesday

Journey to the Cross: Day 3: Holy Tuesday

Journey to the Cross: Day One: Palm Sunday

Bad weather nor a busted plow can keep us from worshipping the Lord and spending time in the Word of God.  While we may not be able to corporately worship today we can still hear (read) the message God has given me in the absence of our pastor. Thank you Lord Jesus, for this message and all the blessings you bestow upon us.  You are … Continue reading Journey to the Cross: Day One: Palm Sunday
