The cross, and Christ’s complete work of atonement there, is the foundation of all we cling to and profess in our faith.

Journey to the Cross offers a reading plan and twenty devotionals to aid you in the study of Christ’s journey to the cross. Dwell on the glorious mystery of God’s plan to redeem and restore his children, to call the lost home, to save the sinner, and give sight to the blind.

He’s offered this gift of grace to all who believe in Him—to you!

The Journey

Christ’s final week of ministry ushered him into Jerusalem amongst praise and exaltation as the city joyfully greeted him with shouts of “Hosanna in the highest”. But the same crowd clamored for his death less than a week later. He rode into the city on a donkey with his twelve disciples joyfully following him. He ended the week betrayed and abandoned by most of them. He began the week heralded as king, and ended it tried as a criminal.

The most historic week in the history of the world was one of great rejoicing and greater sorrow. But God’s stories never end without victory—for we serve not a criminal but the resurrected King of kings.

Pursue Spiritual Growth

As believers and disciples of Christ Jesus, the resurrection is our daily grace and the reality we live in moment-by-moment. Our hearts are turned to the real hope that we have in the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. The cross, and Christ’s complete work of atonement there, is the foundation of all we cling to and profess in our faith. Our celebration ought to be cloaked in thoughtfulness, meditation, Scripture study, and great rejoicing.

Interpret: Take a deep dive into the waters of His living Word. Then, dive deeper still with questions like, What do these observations mean to the audience? What do they mean to me? Let your questions guide you into greater understanding of the text.

Apply: Let the Holy Spirit guide you into a richer relationship with God through His Word. Allow the truths of Scripture to sink deep into your heart and give you the strength to continue onward in this walk of faith.
