TUESDAY: Passion Week Devotional Guide

“Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love… Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” ~ John 15:9, 13

The intimate meal is finished, but love remains the theme. Jesus leads His friends down from the upper room and through the streets of Jerusalem. They will end up at the Garden of Gethsemane, but Jesus lingers on the walk. He tells them that as they love one another, they display God to their world. He tells them that He is confident of the Father’s love towards Himself, and that love has radiated onto them. And then, as He’s done several times throughout this journey to Jerusalem, He speaks of the ultimate reason He has come: “Greater love has no man than this, that one lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). What happens in hours from this moment is the greatest love.

  1. I am still being taught by you Jonathan and I always find a nugget of truth to hang onto and it gets me through the day. I sooo appreciate your servant heart for the Kingdom and still miss you as my Pastor. I know how much your congregation loves you and how you are being used mightily for Him. I really do sense God’s pleasure at the mention of your name!! God richly bless your Easter week. Sending my love to you and Paige too!
