When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid. Mark 16:1-8
Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. Now when the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent!” Luke 23:46-47 ESV
Lord, thank You for Your amazing example. You’ve taught us how to live and how to die. Lord, may I never lose sight of the importance of dying as well as living fully surrendered to You. Lord, thank You that I can know that because of You when I leave this life I’m simply moving home to my Fathers house forever. May I always live in light of my future with You. Amen.
When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30 ESV
Lord Jesus, You came into this world to do Your Father’s will. You came to be the Word Incarnate, The ultimate communication of who God is. You came to be the last Passover Lamb, the ultimate Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. When 3pm came on Good Friday, You had experienced 6 hours on that cross in agony bearing our sins, demonstrating Your and the Fathers love for us, and being our substitute. Now in the ninth hour of the day redemption has been accomplished, propitiation is complete, reconciliation has been made possible, justification is a reality, The Old Testament pictures and promises have all been fully brought to fruition. You have done everything humanly and divinely possible to bring us, to bring me, to God and HALLELUJAH, IT IS FINISHED!

Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Matthew 27:45-46
Lord, This heart wretching cry was because You were bearing all of our sins. Your cry, Your heartbteak, Your separation from the Father made it possible for me to never suffer the same.Hallelujah, What a Savior.You are. Amen
After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. John 19:28-29
Dear Savior, When we hear you cry out “I thirst” it should cause us to shake our heads in disbelief. You by Your word created all the oceans of this world. You by an utterance from Your lips made all the lakes, rivers and streams and it is by those same lips that the water molecules of H2O are held together. It is unimaginable that now those same lips, Your lips, would pray in agony “I thirst”. The great irony and the great agony are demonstrations of Your great matchless love for us. I can never thank You enough but I will surely try. Amen.
When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. John 19:26-27
Jesus, As You took up Your cross and did the Father’s will You still took care of Your family responsibilities. You are carrying the sins of the world and in unimaginable pain and You took care of Your family responsibilities. Lord, as i seek to do Your will please allow me to see taking care of my family as part of doing Your will. Thank you for Your example Jesus. In Your name. Amen.
And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” – Luke 23:42-43 ESV
Lord, There are prayers of sinners and then there is a sinner’s prayer. The repentant thief on the cross asked the simplest of things of You Lord and You answered in the simplest way. Knowing he was going to die, the repentant sinner, the thief, asked for life in Your future kingdom. It was a simple sinner’s prayer. You answered his simple faith with a simple reward. Paradise. Today. Forever. With You. How could You to do that? You were dying on that cross as an innocent substitute for that dying thief. You died for His sins to give him paradise, today, forever, with You.You died in my place as an innocent substitute to give me paradise, today, forever, with You. If i or anyone, anywhere, in simple faith, like the repentant thief, will ask, pray this sinner’s prayer, You will give me or them paradise, today, forever, with You. Thank You my Savior. Amen.
And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments. Luke 23:33-34
Lord, When You pray we all should listen. Jesus, You interceded for those who were killing You. You teach us Lord how to die. No bitterness, no hatred, and no anger rather just love, compassion and forgiveness. Beyond that Lord You not only pray for their forgiveness, You provide the means for them to be forgiven. You are dying for the sins they are commitings against You. There is no one like You Jesus. Thank You for providing a forgiveness for even that which we do against You. You are our Matchless Savior. Amen.
