Lent Week Six

Lenten Devotions were prepared by Rev. Sheryl Colter, Rev. Dr. Laura Hunt, and Kristyn Woodworth

Week Six: The Crucifixion

Scripture Selections:

Matthew 27:27-66; Mark 15:16-40; Luke 23:26-55; John 19:16-42; Hebrews  12:2

Thoughts to Ponder:

How does the actual crucifixion reflect the prophesies (see Week One readings)?  Why did Jesus not use His divine powers to protect Himself from such torture? 

To see how others have suffered for their beliefs, read “Fox’s Book of Martyrs.”

Life Application:

In Hebrews 12:2, we are told that Jesus endured the cross for the joy set before Him.  Is God asking you to endure any suffering this week for some greater joy He is calling you toward?
