The Passion of Jesus

This 40 day series highlights in chronological order the events surrounding Jesus’ death and resurrection as recorded in all four gospels:  Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

The main purpose for Jesus’ coming was to open the door of forgiveness to all people by dying on the cross. His resurrection is not only a victory over death, it witnesses to the immense power of God Himself. Only He who created life can resurrect it. Only He can eradicate the consequences of sin. And only He can bring us back into a relationship with Himself!

The story of Jesus’ death and resurrection is the story of our reconciliation to God! Let these devotionals remind you of Jesus’ incredible sacrifice and encourage you to live in His love and grace.
