As the sun rose on Saturday, sadness filled the hearts of Jesus’ disciples, family and friends. None of them understood that the death of Jesus — the most undeserved death imaginable — would yield a divine return. When Jesus drew His last breath, He disarmed the powfers of darkness and triumphed over all authorities marshaled against the reign of God (Col. 2:14-15).
Let God fill your mind with a knowledge that even death could not contain Jesus. God’s light has triumphed over darkness.

Good Friday is the day that God — who made each of us — bore our sins so we could be forgiven and freed. How can we even begin to express the gratitude, love and praise we feel in response to what Christ has done for us on the cross?
Take a moment to quiet your heart and reflect with God on this perfect love.

From Bible youversion celebrate passion week.
In Passion Week, Jesus prepared to take the wrath of Judgment Day for all of us. He knew what was coming and made the ultimate sacrifice. Jesus wasn’t surprised. He was obedient – even to death on a cross!
Join in prayer and approach the cross with a renewed sense of awe, humility and gratitude.

Zachariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. 10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from river even to the ends of the earth. 11 As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water. 12 Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;
Let’s begin our celebration of Easter Passion Week by thinking of Jesus’ humble entry to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. No other king could arrive to conquer warhorses and warriors while humbly riding on the foal of a donkey. No other king could break the backbone of all warfare by the brokenness of the cross.
Deepen your reflection on Christ’s passion through this two minute audio prayer. Marvel and wonder at God’s plan, and thank Him for the richness of His grace.http://bible.com/r/Nv
