Holy week is One week from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday with great significance as a time of devotion to the Passion of Jesus Christ.
Holy Week is eight days that allow us an opportunity to reflect upon the shift in humanity that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross initiated.
It starts with Palm Sunday when Jesus enters the city of Jerusalem. Upon his arrival, the people shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,” “Blessed is the king of Israel,” and other words of praise.
Jesus would later pour out His life for ours — “He poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with transgressors. For he bore the sins of many and made intercession for the transgressors” (Isaiah 53:12).
This the precipice of the week to follow, leading us through the moments of the Last Supper, Christ’s crucifixion, and ending on Easter Sunday with His resurrection.
His sacrifice establishes the New Covenant, which throughout the Old Testament was prophesied in scripture. The text is clear—
“For this reason, Christ is the mediator of the new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.” (Hebrews 9:15).
The Holy weekdays allow us to remember with clarity what Jesus has done for us. To exemplify the Savior’s heart for His people. The life, death, and resurrection of Christ is the testimony of God, that through His love for us Christ died while we were sinners.
His love reflects the significance of living out this love today and in the church, which is something that the current day church finds struggle adhering to.
More often than not, we find judgment, condemnation, and a power struggle between people claiming one to be more worthy than the other.
The truth, Jesus is worthy, and if He chooses to share His worthiness with sinners in order to show the redemptive power in His blood, then who are we to question God?
Today, may the church of Jesus Christ step up and carry their cross, and with every breath, may the agape love of Jesus be shared with the Earth.
May the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ be the underlying reason to be a Christian, and with this knowledge, may His Divine mercy be at the core of each person’s work, values, and character.
This is the will of God.
God Bless You,
