This week is Holy Week or Passion Week. It is the week leading up to Easter Sunday. My tendency is to move forward and focus on the miracle of the resurrection of Jesus. The empty tomb. The celebration that is at the core of our Christian faith. The resurrection was the culmination of a week of events for Jesus. By walking through the week with Jesus, the resurrection on Easter Sunday brings even more cause for celebration. On the following page, there is a Passion Week Timeline. Take some time this week to focus on timeline and walking through the days and even the times on Good Friday. Follow the scriptures and trace the footsteps, the conversations and events of Jesus leading up to what we celebrate as Easter Sunday. Feel what Jesus felt. Feel what the disciples felt.
We are in a season of different times than most of us have ever experienced. Separation, fear, unknown future. I believe that the devil is licking his chops during this time. He thinks he has us right where he wants us.
He was celebrating the same at 9:00 in the morning on what we now call good Friday. Jesus was hanging on the cross and had breathed his last breath.
It was Friday, but Sunday was comin’!
We serve a faithful God. Blessings to you and your families this Easter Season.
