Hebrews Devotional #10: Course Nails

March 24, 2020

 

Scripture:

Consider him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you may not grow weary or lose heart. – Hebrews 12:3

 

Prayer:

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

We set our minds to contemplate…

…How your Son, without complaint or protest,

     Walked a long rough trail

          Up the side of a hill

     Carrying heavy wooden crossbeam

          Punished to the brink of death

               Having received course nails into flesh

 

…How your Lamb, without struggle for freedom

     Allowed himself to be hoisted

          On a rough-hewn pole

     Thirst unquenched by water or wine

          Abandoned by God and Human, exposed

               Victim in the Passover drama

 

…How your Child, without malice or hate

     Suspended above people and earth

          Spoke words of startling grace:

 

“Father, forgive, they know not what they do”

“Today, you will join me in paradise”

“Into your hands I commend my spirit”

“It is finished.”

 

May we not grow weary or lose heart.

     -Amen
