Greetings in the name of Jesus,
We've now entered Holy Week, and I'm wondering what you personally do to prepare spiritually for Easter.
Are you someone who likes to wend your way through the Lenten season and then begin building the intensity during Holy Week?
We begin with Palm Sunday, then remember Maundy Thursday when Christ instituted Communion as the new covenant.
Do you enter the depths of Good Friday with a heavy heart knowing that your sins, along with those of everyone else were what held Him to the cross?
I am one of those who want to work my way through Lent and then remember the triumphal entry into Jerusalem, followed later in the week with the Last Supper after which Christ was arrested, and finally immerse myself in the depths of Good Friday before celebrating the triumph and joy of Easter morning.
What is it that you each like to do?
Have a heartfelt chat about that this week.
Go back to the Gospels and begin reading in each when Palm Sunday or the Passover is beginning, through to the end.
May the joy and victory of Easter be with you now and always ~
P.S. How are you doing in praying for our elected officials so far this year, now that the first quarter has passed?
