Lent Day 37: The Plot

Aug 18, 2019

Welcome to It Is Well Living Church's Lent Day 37: The Plot. As we continue our journey through the season of Lent, we invite you to join us in exploring the significance of this day in the Christian faith. Through reflection, devotion, and prayer, we delve into the plot that unfolded to bring about our redemption.

The Significance of Lent Day 37

Lent Day 37 holds a crucial position in the timeline leading up to Easter. It marks the unfolding of events that paved the way for the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of Christian belief. Understanding the plot that unfolded on this day allows us to deeply connect with the profound love and grace of God.

The Plot Unfolds

In order to fully grasp the significance of this day, we must travel back in time to the days leading up to Jesus' crucifixion. On this specific day, the plot against Jesus deepened as those who opposed him conspired to bring about his downfall.

As Jesus continued to challenge the religious and political authorities, his popularity grew among the people. His teachings resonated deeply, and his message of love and forgiveness threatened the established order. This threatened the power structure in place, leading to increased opposition towards Jesus and his followers.

The Plot Thickens

During Lent Day 37, Judas Iscariot, one of Jesus' disciples, made a fateful decision. Motivated by greed and disillusionment, Judas approached the chief priests and agreed to betray Jesus in exchange for thirty pieces of silver.

As evening fell, Jesus gathered with his disciples for the Last Supper, a significant event commemorated by Christians around the world. It was during this intimate gathering that Jesus revealed the plot against him, stating that one of his own disciples would betray him. The tension within the group grew palpable as each one questioned their own loyalty.

The Ultimate Sacrifice

This day, Lent Day 37, serves as a reminder of the immense sacrifice made by Jesus Christ. As the plot against him thickened, Jesus chose to submit to God's will and willingly embrace the suffering that awaited him. His arrest, trial, and crucifixion were imminent, yet his love for humanity remained steadfast.

Through his ultimate sacrifice, Jesus demonstrated the depths of God's love for us. It is through his death and resurrection that we find redemption and eternal life. Lent Day 37 serves as a bridge between the unfolding plot and the hope of resurrection that Easter brings.

Reflecting on Lent Day 37

As we commemorate Lent Day 37, we are invited to reflect on our own lives and the plots that unfold within them. We may face challenges, betrayal, or moments of doubt, much like Jesus did on this day. However, in every plot, there is an opportunity for transformation and renewed faith.

By journeying through Lent with open hearts and minds, we align ourselves with Christ's suffering and his unwavering love. We can find solace in knowing that even in the darkest moments, God has a plan, and an ultimate purpose that surpasses our understanding.
