Passion Week

This week is Passion Week, the week leading up to Resurrection Day. Many people are more familiar with the term Easter, but many of the things surrounding the commercialized holiday have little to do with the resurrection of Christ and any of the things that lead up to it, let alone what it means for us. In spite of this, millions of people all over the globe have been in a season of consecration, repentance, and reflection. From the beginning of the year until now, there has been calls for fasting, prayer, sacrifices of fleshly desires. It’s all to put us in remembrance of the sacrifice that Christ made through the suffering he went through for his Father’s creation.at the cross

This supernatural event that coincides with the Passover feast is a reminder of the victory that the Jewish people experienced in Egypt when the death angel passed over them. The protection they experienced through their obedience to cover the door post with the blood was a foreshadow of how the shed blood of Christ on the cross would be for us.

As you go through this week, take some time to recount the acts of Christ. Remember that what he did had nothing to do with religion. The things he did was all about reconciling the relationship between us and God. In bringing this to fruition, there were no chocolate bunnies, no colored eggs, no wicker baskets, no jelly beans or marshmallows involved. There was however, blood, steel spikes,  a crown of thorns, a big wooden cross; and when it was over an empty tomb. There is no other representation of God where God covers the price of sin for us. Focus yourself during this week on what it means.  Find the hope and redemption that was made available to you through his suffering. There is no greater love shown than that of the one who laid down his life for us.

QUESTION: Are you celebrating the right thing for the right reason?
