DAY 7 - APRIL 14

Seventh Station: Jesus Bears the Cross

When they saw him, the leading priests and Temple guards began shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” “Take him yourselves and crucify him,” Pilate said. “I find him not guilty.”

“Away with him,” they yelled. “Away with him! Crucify him!” “What? Crucify your king?” Pilate asked. “We have no king but Caesar,” the leading priests shouted back. Then Pilate turned Jesus over to them to be crucified.

So they took Jesus away. Carrying the cross by himself, he went to the place called Place of the Skull (in Hebrew, Golgotha). (John 19:6, 15-17)

Prayer: Lord, grant us strength of purpose that we may faithfully bear our crosses each day.

*Pray for the burdens our teammates and those coming to Easter services are carrying.
