Friday, I was writing over at dotMagis in preparation for Holy Week. Holy Week is one of my favorite weeks of the year because of the richness and meaning of the week. I am always deeply moved to think of what these last few days for Jesus must have been like for him. I pray that we can turn to Jesus fully this week in remembering what he did for us.
Jesus, as we enter Holy Week, I am moved with emotion that you were able to put one foot in front of the other as you entered the streets of Jerusalem. You knew that Jerusalem was a city that did not like prophets, much less the Messiah. Surely you understand you were in danger as you went there. Surely you knew your life was at risk. Why did you go?
Jerusalem was your end, but it was our beginning.
For more on Jesus’ end but our beginning head on over to dotMagis!
