This week brings with it a wonderful opportunity to reflect upon the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. The foundation of our beliefs is what we celebrate this week. This past Sunday, we reflected on what God through Jesus secures for us. As Jesus, our King, rides into town with shouts of Hosanna, God is securing for us our salvation. We are made safe in final judgment and given life through the person and work of Jesus. Take this week and follow Jesus in His last week, what we call Passion Week or Holy Week. Here is a breakdown of each day and the scripture that corresponds to that day. Carve out space each day and read, pray, and perhaps sing in worship for the work of Jesus that secures our salvation.
