[Jesus' crucifixion] happened on* the day of preparation, the day before the Sabbath.
* The NLT translators added "Friday" to the text here. However, it was not in the original Greek text or found in other reputable translations.
O Father, please give me a proper sense of what is holy. I do not want to be a legalistic ritual keeper; yet, at the same time, I do not want to drain all of life of its spiritual meaning by secularizing all time. Teach me to know your will, your time, and your holy ways. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

Each devotional consists of a scripture passage and a reflection and a prayer which open up the day's scripture and show how it challenges you to live for Jesus.
