an encouragement to begin preparing

In just a few days, the world will turn its attention to Holy Week. Based on your particular spiritual background, you may have very definite feelings about the last days of Jesus’ earthly ministry. You may even hold some traditions very close that cause reflection on the ultimate sacrifice paid for our salvation. To help you reflect, learn, and meditate on the events of Holy Week, one of our team members at Journey onWord, Mark Robb, will take us on a day by day journey of the days leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. His articles will also reflect on the hinge of history – the death, burial and resurrection of the Savior.  It is our hope that your life will be challenged, motivated and changed by spending the week reflecting upon the critical days that changed history.

Today’s article is different. The words aren’t intended to challenge or teach. They are meant as an encouragement to begin preparing your heart and life to journey with us through the very special days of Holy Week. Our readings for next week will remain consistent and focus on Jesus’ words.  We’ll leave Matthew briefly for timely sections of the gospel of Mark’s account of Jesus’ final week on earth.  For your benefit, the following are also offered as additional sections of Scripture that tell the story of Jesus’ final week.

Luke Chapters 22 through 24
John Chapters 12 through 20

We are expectantly waiting for what God has for us as we journey together through Holy Week.
