EASTER SERVICE OF THE CRUXIFIXION

Updated: Sep 7, 2021




Our Easter Service of the Crucifixion is to me one of the most important stations of the year while journeying towards Easter.


Although the service is quite long, and some of the readings are repetitive, multiple emotions linked to various thoughts stream through my veins inspiring me of who I am.

Who am I so that “the Son of man” gives His life as ransom for me (Mt 20)? Who am I so that my Lord comes to serve me? (Mk 10: 45) Who am I so that the Master Himself washes my dirty feet? (Jn 13) Who am I, to deserve my Lord’s crucifixion? (Jn 19) Who am I, to be among the chosen ones? (Jn 15:16) Who am I to be saved, though I am still a sinful wretch? (Ro 5:8) Who am I to be called son, while I behave like a slave? (Gal 4:6) Who am I to be called a believer, while my attitudes tell the contrary?

Even Though and at the same time, looking at the Crucifix lifts me up very high. I am able to repent. (Lk 19:1-10) I deserve the unconditional love of God. (Eph 3:18-19) I am created in His own image and likeness. (Gen 1:27) I am not a stranger but a member of God’s household. (Eph 2:19) I deserve to receive Him into my heart. (Mt 26:26) I am the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1Cor 6: 19-20) He reminds me that I am the light of the world (Mt 5: 14-16) I am His friend because He told me everything the Father told Him. (Jn 15:15)

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of friendship. Thank you for the gift of salvation. I am so proud taking part in Your ministry. I am so proud being a Christian. I am so proud being me, who strives to become like you. Please Lord grant me to abide in You and help me to walk in your ways. (1Jn 2:6)
