Easter Meditation | Week Three
During this month leading up to Easter, let us take some time to slow down and meditate on what God has done for us. Over the course of the next few weeks, we will post passages of Scripture for reflection and meditation. We encourage you to read and reread and contemplate the goodness of Christ Jesus in the gospel. His love for us is truly astounding.
After reading, ask yourself two questions: 1. What does this passage say about God? 2. What am I called to do in response to my God?
Matthew 27:27-44: Then soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor's headquarters, and they gathered the whole battalion before him. And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they spit on him and took the reed and struck him on the head. And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him and led him away to be crucified.
|Isaiah 53:4-6: Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. He was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—everyone—to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.|
