Historical & Personal

It isn’t too often an event that happened 2000 years ago has such an impact on our lives today as the events of Holy Week does.

It’s life and death…..and then life again.

Each year we walk through these steps and remember. We see re-enactments and we attend church services and we review the course of events of this week. We see ourselves as the

  • betrayer,
  • sleepy disciples in the garden,
  • denier,
  • grieving mother,
  • curious observers,
  • chief priests and elders,
  • governer’s soldiers,
  • thieves on the cross.

What Jesus endured seems unfair and unimaginable. His suffering is almost incomprehensible. And God’s provision for our eternal life, through Jesus, is inconceivable.

But the course of events is the only way to

  • be forgiven for our many sins.
  • know the depth of God’s love for us.
  • be renewed in His mercy.
  • be saved by His grace.

Jesus’ suffering and death and resurrection is the only way for our guilt and shame to be taken away.
