Journey of Faith Friday: Crucify Him


Crucify Him

"...the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus..."

"Judus...discussed with them how he might betray Jesus."

"He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them..."

"'I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover wtih you before I suffer....This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me....This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.'"

"'Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.  But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail.  And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.'"

"'...I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me.'"

"'Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.'"

"And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground."

"He approached Jesus to kiss him, but Jesus asked him, 'Judus, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?'"

"'But this is your hour-when darkness reigns.'"

"Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest."

"Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.  The Lord turned and looked straight at [Simon] Peter.  Then [Simon] Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him....And he went outside and wept bitterly."

"The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him."

"Jesus answered, 'If I tell you, you will not believe me, and if I asked you, you would not answer.  But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.'"

"He [Herod] plied him with many questions, but Jesus gave him no answer.  The chief preists and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him.  The Herod and his soldiers ridiculed and mocked him."

"But they kept shouting, 'Crucify him!  Crucify him!'"

"...their shouts prevailed.  So Pilate decided to grant their demand."

"A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him.  Jesus turned and said to them, 'Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.  For the the time will come when you will say, 'Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!''"

"...they crucified him....Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.'"

"The people stood watching and the rulers even sneered at him."

"The soldiers came up and mocked him."

"It was not about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining.  And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.  Jesus called out with a loud voice, 'Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.'  When he had said this, he breathed his last."

"The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, 'Surely this was a righteous man.'"

"Then he [Joseph] took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid............................................................."

Most Friday's, I post about the work God is doing or has done in my life, as I journey with Him on this road of faith.
How is God working in your life as you journey with Him?

I have decided to discontinue hosting the linky at this time, but may resume in the future.  However, I would still love to read your post, so be sure to leave a link in the comment section.
