We are taking each day to be with Jesus this week leading up to Christ’s resurrection that we celebrate on Easter.
Spend some quiet time with the passage each day.
Settle and still yourself by whatever means you find effective to give your full attention to the stirrings within you from the presence of the Holy Spirit.
A few deep breaths to calm your body and soul may be helpful to prepare yourself.
May you grow in the compassion of our Lord as you are with Him on this journey to the cross.May you discover how to follow Him more nearly in the way of Love and receive the love He has freely given His life for.
Be with Jesus there at the table where He and his friends are sharing a meal together.
What does it feel like to be there and hear the words that Jesus speaks?
What strikes you in the heart?
Talk to Jesus about anything that you are feeling and thinking right now.
Know that His love covers all and that He forgives and accepts you as you are.
What kind of response will you give back to this Love ?
PRAYER of Response
“Oh God, My heart desires to love you more yet I know that I am weak and will turn away from you at times, Forgive me for this wandering and help me to draw close to you and not run away from your love. Help me in my weakness and give me strength.”
“My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. 2 Cor. 12:9
