Passion week part 2

Passover began at sundown last night. As we are preparing ourselves for the events to come in the next few days lets take time to put ourselves into the heart of God. Tonight marks the day in which we remember the last supper. The last time that Jesus and the disciples would be together and rejoicing. Can you imagine how Jesus felt going to dinner with his friends, knowing that it would be his last? Yet, he rejoiced with them. He knew that the next day would be the day that he would be beaten, bludgeoned, stabbed and had a crown of thorns jammed onto his head. After this he would be made to carry a cross through the city to the place that he would then be nailed to the cross. I think that we forget the size of the actual cross. We see the crosses in our churches that are hung as a remembrance. That cross weighed a couple of hundred pounds. Jesus carried that after being brutally beaten. ALL for US. All for me. All for my sins. Take this day and remember the emotion that Jesus was feeling during this time. All knowing what was about to happen. We truly worship an amazing God!
