DAY 3 - APRIL 10
Third Station: Jesus is Condemned by the Sanhedrin
At daybreak all the elders of the people assembled, including the leading priests and the teachers of religious law. Jesus was led before this high council, and they said, “Tell us, are you the Messiah?” But he replied, “If I tell you, you won’t believe me. And if I ask you a question, you won’t answer. But from now on the Son of Man will be seated in the place of power at God’s right hand.” They all shouted, “So, are you claiming to be the Son of God?” And he replied, “You say that I am.” “Why do we need other witnesses?” they said. “We ourselves heard him say it.” (Luke 22:66-71)
Prayer: Lord, grant us your sense of righteousness that we may never cease to work to bring about the justice of the kingdom that you promised.
*Pray that we will never become so consumed by trends, appearances or legalism that we lose sight of our relationship with Jesus.
