What Are Your Holy Week Reflections?: pstrmike
Yesterday, I felt like I can’t wait for Lent to be over. It has been a difficult observance for me, and I don’t think I took on anything overly strenuous. I realized today the difficulty in observing Lent has helped me reflect on Holy Week just a bit deeper than I have in the past. I have spent more time thinking about the Passion, and in our present state, has drawn all of us a bit closer to the fellowship of His sufferings.
And it has stirred me to worship the One who demonstrated the greatest love.
The week began with the Hosannas; a willingness to let Jesus be King, but on their terms, not His. He knew their hearts, just like He knows ours. The week moves forward as we walk towards a final Passover with the establishment of the new covenant, a King washing his follower’s feet, a betrayal, intense emotional and spiritual wrestling in prayer while His companions sleep, a denial, horrendously unjust legal proceedings, merciless physical and mental torture, culminating with the execution of a just and righteous man, who in the end, commits Himself into the hands of the Father.
I know I have missed some observations. I want to provide space for you to add your own here as we walk together and give thought and worship to our Lord and King, Jesus.
As Michael would say, it’s all yours………
