An experience to remember
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” — Romans 5:8
For centuries, earnest believers have observed the “Stations of the Cross,” or the Via Dolorosa (“The Way of Sorrow”) as a devotional exercise to reflect on the importance of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Early believers sought to more fully remember the events of the Passion Week by setting up trails, with guided stops along the way, built to remind themselves of various events leading up to the crucifixion.
The Winning Walk has created a unique collection of devotionals to help you remember some of these historical events, and to lead you to worship God for the amazing sacrifice He made on our behalf. This is not a traditional rendering of the Stations of the Cross, but a fresh perspective on an ancient practice to help us prepare ourselves to more fully remember and embrace the Passion story.
These devotionals highlight a collection of eight actions, items and locations associated with the events surrounding the betrayal and crucifixion of Jesus. We recommend that you first read the selections from God’s Word, then read the Reflection that explains the significance of the elements described in the devotional. Finally, the suggested prayer will help you apply the truths to your life today.
