Passion Week 2016

Thank you Jesus. I am forever Yours.

In the chaos of our increasingly fast-paced and hectic society, Holy Week is a reminder to pause and ponder, to carefully mark each day and not let this greatest of all weeks fly by us like every other.

I am a hypocrite. My emotions so easily pleased and displeased. My heart cries out for you Lord. I am a sinner.

Save us, we pray, O Lord! O Lord, we pray, give us success! Psalm 118:23

The people wanted salvation and success. In the times, salvation meaning these people wanted to be free from the Gentile oppression. Instead the people received true salvation which they were so blind to see.

If we could listen in on these crowds, we’d hear our shouts along with theirs. We’d hear our praise, and then, by Friday, ashamed, we’d hear our mocking voice “call out among the scoffers.” At some point in our lives, we’ve been part of both crowds. Maybe we would have praised him, but at some point we too have mocked. It is not the righteous, after all, whom Jesus came to save, but sinners — like us. Jonathan Parnell

Jesus came to save sinners just like me. I am one of those people. I am a sinner. I am a hypocrite. I have praised and then mocked. I am unworthy, yet, He saved me. In our inability to live out all that he called us to He continues to lavish upon his Grace. You have no sin that has more power than the CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST!

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace. Ephesians 1:7.

Thank you Jesus. I am forever Yours.
