Passion Week

   Today we begin what is known as Passion Week. When we give any thought, we fully agree this should be a week of passion as we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is the greatest act of love that has ever been given to this human race. Anyone who is any kind of a Bible student would have to conclude we were all lost and on our way to hell because we were all sinners.

     Now we who receive His sacrifice for our sin debt have been freed from the sentence of death. We who believe have eternal life because this sinless man gave Himself in our place. I think any Christian who is passionless surely has not clearly understood what He gave for all of us. We know and teach He was God in flesh, gave up His throne in heaven to become a human subject to all our frailties. He, the perfect man, allowed these self-righteous leaders to mock Him, spit upon Him, beat and crucify Him when He could have called 10,000 angels to rescue Him but rather submit to humiliation and death to give all who would believe eternal life.

     Yes, this should be the greatest week for every Christian as we reflect on the truth of eternal life. Jesus promised that we, who stay true to the end will, rule and reign with Him forever! What a grand concept and to think we can’t earn it just believe, receive and have a better life for walking in this truth. I pray this will be the greatest passion week of our live.

God Bless,
