Saturday evening, April 4:

Join us each day through Passion Week, from Palm Sunday through Passover to Resurrection Sunday, as we follow Jesus in the His final days before the cross! The Passion of Christ comes from the Latin word pointing us to His “sufferings” for us. May we be inspired by our Savior’s spirit of service and sacrifice on our behalf, as each day Pastor Jonathan provides a devotional thought via video.

Monday, April 6:

On the Monday of His Passion Week, Jesus would once again enter the Temple in a dramatic way. Are we allowing Jesus to enter the temple of our lives in a dramatic way today? To view this day’s devotional video, please click on the following link:

Tuesday, April 7:

On this Tuesday of His Passion Week, Jesus would pour out His heart in parables and teachings seeking to reach those who would soon reject Him. But as He is weighed down with thoughts of the destruction coming upon Jerusalem, one heart would thrill His soul. May that person’s heart be reflected in our own.

Wednesday, April 8 (beginning of Passover at sunset):

Thursday, April 9 (Last Supper & Gethsemane):

On Thursday of Passion Week, preparations were made for Jesus and His disciples to celebrate the Passover meal together that evening. What does their experience in the upper room that night tell us today? And what did Jesus experience the rest of that evening that would set the stage for the cross?

Good Friday, April 10:

We have made it to Good Friday of Passion Week when Jesus was crucified. What does this cosmic moment mean as we see Jesus hanging from that cross? The rest of the New Testament will attempt to answer this question. But what does it mean to you personally? To view this day’s devotional video, please click on the following link:

[disclaimer: mention is accidentally made of Jesus going to Gethsemane but should instead be “Calvary” where Jesus was crucified. Been a loooooooooong week. Sorry!]


Sabbath resting in the tomb, April 11:
