Walking With Jesus
To the Cross…and Beyond
Holy Week Devotions
For much of my life I thought of Easter as only one day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. We had a Palm Sunday/Sabbath celebration where we remembered Jesus’ joyous entry into Jerusalem for the Passover Celebration. and talked a little about the events of the week leading up to Easter but not much emphasis was put there. It was so unlike Christmas. Weeks were spent anticipating that day of celebration, singing songs, reading stories and decorating in anticipation of the celebration of his birth.
Not so much with His resurrection. One day of celebration, dinner with the family, then we were done.
While I’m not suggesting we need to intensify the hype of Christ’s Resurrection I realized over the past few years that I want to experience it differently. I dug into the scriptures of the time between Palm Sunday and the Resurrection and I discovered that Jesus walked through so much in those few days that I hadn’t thought of before.
I’d like to share some of what I found with you.
Beginning tomorrow, Palm Sunday I will post a devotion each morning to help us walk to the cross with Jesus.
I hope these thoughts will help deepen your experience of the days leading to the cross and intensify your celebration of the greatest moment in Christian history – the resurrection of Jesus!
blessings and peace to you as we enter this Holy week…
