What does this week mean to you?

It’s Holy Week. It’s the week between Palm Sunday and Easter when Christians think about the final week of Jesus’ life. It’s a great opportunity for us to reflect on the basics of our faith.

On Palm Sunday, my Pastor reminded us of this very thing. He said the surpassing worth in life is knowing Jesus Christ as Lord.

How well do you know Him? Spend some time this Holy Week making a concerted effort to spend some time getting to know Christ more deeply. Here are some Scripture passages to help you in your reflection:

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Philippians 2:8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

Acts 1:11 “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”

Romans 8:34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised— who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

Revelation 5:13 And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

May you be blessed as you focus on Christ this week.
Rick
