Journeying Through Holy Week by orchardblog

This is holy week. In the Western church, it is the time we reflect and remember the entrance of our Messiah – Jesus – into Jerusalem.

This week begins with Palm Sunday then takes us to Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday) – which remembers the last supper of Christ with his followers.

The next day is Good Friday. What a strange word to use for that day… “Good”? Some believe that “good” has been misplaced over time for the word “God” – in which case the day was known (and is today) in other countries as “God Friday.” Either way – without a doubt, the implications of this day are, indeed, GOOD. It is the day Jesus bore the sins of the world.

And of course, all of this leads us to a great day of celebration – Easter Sunday. The day we rejoice because our King is indeed ALIVE. He has risen.

My friend, Steve Argue, has been posting daily during this Holy Week over at his blog. I’ve been following his posts daily and my heart has been moved and pulled. I would encourage you to follow along as well. Journeying through this week prepares us well for quite the celebration on Sunday. The significance comes ALIVE.
