START ON THE SUNDAY PRIOR TO EASTER SUNDAY
This is Palm Sunday because people laid the branches in his path. Read Luke 19:28-42 and Zechariah 9:9. Reflection: How often do you praise God for coming into your life?
MONDAY: Read about Jesus at the Temple in Luke 19:45-20:8.
Reflection: Think about your body as the temple. What does Jesus need to clean to be truly honored?
TUESDAY: Read about Jesus teaching at the Temple in Luke 20:1-40.
Reflection: Have there been times when Jesus’ truth has seemed harsh to you or hard to follow. Did you grumble and back away? Did you question him?
WEDNESDAY: Read who Jesus said he was and the reactions in Luke 20:41-47 & Luke 22:1-6.
Refection: It is sometimes hard to be a disciple of the truth and the way. Sometimes we want Jesus to do what we want or act the way we feel he should. Think on this and how that led Judas astray.
THURSDAY: (The Day of the Last Supper) Read Luke 22:7-46.
Reflection: Do you say “grace” before you eat? Think of the disciples. His disciples couldn’t keep awake even one hour to pray with Him. Tonight see if you can spend one hour praying with Jesus. Scripture tells us he prays for us unceasingly.
FRIDAY: (Good Friday) Today, sometime between 12:00 noon and 3:00 pm stop for a few moments to reflect on Jesus’ death on the cross. Read Luke 22:47-23:48 and John 19:1-37.
Refection: He loves you that much.
SATURDAY: Jesus lies in the tomb out of our sight. Read Luke 23:50-56 & John 19:38-42. Reflection: As you prepare for Easter, think of what Jesus is doing for your sake even though you can’t see him.
SUNDAY – EASTER! Awaken with a song in your heart. He is Risen ― The Lord Is Risen Indeed! Read Luke 24 and John 20.
Reflection: go to church. Be with family. In your own words, relay to others what you have just experienced through the past week and what it has meant to you.
