Worship In Light of Passion Week

As we are now into the Passion Week, I’ve been thinking about how important this week is to our worship. Easter, is the most important Holiday of the year, second to none. Regardless of the emphasis we put on Christmas, Easter will remain the one Holiday that Christians celebrate that gives us our distinction from all other religions. Mohamed, Buddha, Joseph Smith, among others, all lie in the graves turning or having already been turned back into dust. But our God, the only true God is Alive, sitting right this very moment at the right hand of the Father.

If for some reason it is not enough for us to Worship Him for what He has done for us, that horrible death that he died on our behalf, for our sins, then let us worship Him for who He is. He is the only God to have conquered death, hell & the grave. No others could do so. He is the Alpha and Omega, the first God & the last God. There have not been, and will not be any other gods ever. What a phenomenal God we serve, how could we not worship.

If we find ourselves going through a particularly difficult time this week, let us stop and think about what happened this week nearly 2,000 years ago. It was this week that Christ’s passion for us took him to a death for our sins. He endured the longest 36 hours known to any man, beatings and questionings longer and more difficult that any of us could ever imagine, the most embarrassing death anyone could ever imagine, ridicule, mockery and abandonment. All in the matter of 36 hours, he did all this not for himself, but for us. Let us keep our perspective this week, and come together on Sunday for the greatest time of worship yet, celebrating the eternal life of Our God, and Our savior. For it is He who reigns and lives on high, and we who get the privilege of falling at his feet in worship. My redeemer lives, he walks with me and talks with me along lives narrow way. You ask me how I know he lives. He lives within My heart!
