Passion week is so glorious.  All of it.  The triumphant entry.  The cleansing of the temple. The Sermon on the Mount.

The Last Supper. The garden.  The ridiculous trials.  The shame of Peter.

The nails.  The suffering servant.  The amazing atonement.  The  sin bearer.  The death.

The day darkness.  The shaken earth.  The torn curtain.


The silence.  The tears.  The confusion.

The moved stone.  The empty tomb.  The death of death.

The words to Mary.  The restoration of Peter.  The appearing.

It’s all glorious.  Gloriously heartbreaking.  Gloriously beautiful.  Gloriously amazing.

I pray that you take the time to reflect and praise Him for every part.

We will be doing most of these activities today, tomorrow, and Sunday.  Check them out for ways to really enhance the celebrations.

I’m incredibly grateful for all this week and weekend mean!
