Anticipating Good Friday and Easter…

Let us remember with devotion this entry which began His saving work . . . and let us follow Him with a lively faith.

 

I was struck by the quote…”We reveal to ourselves and others what is important to us by the way we prepare/celebrate.” I added the word prepare here because I believe this also is a way we reveal to ourselves and others…

I wonder how you are preparing to move through Holy Week. I realize that it could be another week where all of a sudden it is Good Friday and Easter. I don’t want the week to slip by me without proper reflection and preparation on my part. And I don’t want to just fall into line with a prescribed plan that  should prepare my heart. I am keeping my Crown of Thorns in a very visible place, holding, it, feeling it, wondering about it and remembering why the Crown of Thorns has meaning to me…deep meaning!

As I move into and through Holy Week, I pray that I will grasp again the depth of my sin, the incredible sacrifice of  Jesus death on the Cross and the magnitude of hope and new life that results from Christ’s Resurrection.

I do hope that in the coming days I will understand in even a deeper way which will allow me to live an even more lively faith.
