A reflection on the Crucifixion of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ

Reflections for the day

Colossians 2:13-15

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Luke 23:34

Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

2 Corinthians 2:14-15

But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.

How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb. –Basilea Schlink

A reflection on the Crucifixion of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ

Heavenly Father,

It is at this time in Holy Week that we reflect upon the life, and we reflect upon the ministry of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and it is at this time in Holy Week that we reflect upon the final hours of the life of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that during the ministry of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed to all Mankind that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ had come to set Mankind free from all sin.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that this was a means by which all of Mankind are able to turn to you, Our Heavenly Father, by asking you for the forgiveness of all our sins.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that during the life of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, there was a fulfilment of the prophecies of the Old Testament, and we acknowledge that on a number of occasions your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, foretold a death, and that the foretelling of a death, and the foretelling of a resurrection is one that is described as the Passion.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life that was free from sin, and it is at this time we ask you to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask you to guide all to follow an example given by your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was prepared for the final hours upon a cross, and that an attitude was one that can be described as one that was calm, and that an attitude was one that can be described as assured. We are able to see in a way that is clear that the death of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one that is described as slow and agonising, and is one that is described as a time of sufferance. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, laid down a life for each and every one of us, and that through a death, and through a resurrection, you offered to all Mankind the sacrifice of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, for all the sins of Mankind for all eternity.

Heavenly Father, your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed that love triumphed over evil by the words of forgiveness that were uttered from the cross for those who had condemned your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and by a response of a promise in paradise to the thief who repented from the cross who had died alongside your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that death is not the end of all for Mankind, and that there is a promise of a life that is eternal with you if many are able to see the error of a way, and say sorry for an error of a way, and are able to incur a change in a life that is necessary.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to you the good works of  Peter Hutley, and we ask for your blessing on “The Passion of Jesus,” a play that is produced at Trafalgar Square today. We hope and we pray that many will be led to an understanding of your love for us, and we hope and we pray that many will be led to an understanding of the sacrifice that you made when your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died upon a cross for all. We hope and we pray that many will reflect carefully upon the message of the crucifixion, and we hope and we pray that many will turn to you always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask you to provide a number of opportunities for many to proclaim the triumph that was given by your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in order to save Mankind from all sin, and in order for many to proclaim that love will overcome evil, and for many to proclaim that the word of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, is a living word that has a relevance, now and always.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to yourself, Our Heavenly Father, all that has been said, in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who together with your Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and sitteth at thou right side of Our Heavenly Father, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    By wearing the cross, it reminds us of the sacrifice that Jesus made when He was crucified and today, Good Friday reminds us of the wickedness which permeates today’s world. We pray that some of the tyrannies carried out in some countries be overcome by thy intervention
