Words from the Cross: Devotionals & Liturgies

In his letter to the church at Corinth, the Apostle Paul wrote that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ were of “first importance” (1 Corinthians 15:3). Life is full of many things, not all of them being equally significant. Some things don’t matter much while others are very important. But the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are of “first importance.” That means they are the most important things in all of life.

Consequently, the story of Jesus is THE main message that God has communicated to us through his Word, the Bible (John 5:39). Everything, from beginning to end, from Genesis to Revelation, the Old Testament, and the New Testament…all of it is about Jesus. All of it. (Luke 24:27)

To help you better see and savor Jesus, the elders of Coram Deo Church have provided this short devotional and liturgy booklet. Each devotion traces the story of Jesus through the book of Genesis. In each text, we see shadows of our Savior and imperfect glimpses of his perfect grace. A liturgical prayer has also been provided to guide you in a worshipful response to each story.

Finally, I would like to invite you to join us for our Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday services. We will be gathering on Good Friday, April 7th, at 5:30 & 7:00 PM to remember the crucifixion of our Lord. Then on Sunday, April 9th, we will be gathering at 8, 9:30, & 11 AM to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. I hope this devotional booklet will be a blessing to you as you meditate upon that which is of first importance.

1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. — 1 John 2:1–2 (ESV)
