Finding Passion This Week

Passion week is sacred.  It is the time of year the whole earth celebrates the sacrifice of our Savior, and more importantly, the resurrection of our Redeemer.  Truly we can say, “Because He lives; I can face tomorrow!”

I encourage you, make this week more meaningful by reading through the passion week scriptures.  Leonard Ravenhill often said, “don’t go through the scriptures, let the scriptures go through you!”  May your pursuit this week be to make a meaningful connection with God’s word.

I’ve broken down the scriptures for you with each corresponding day.  This is the schedule I’ve been following.  I hope it helps.
