Midweek Message, March 28, 2018

My friend, Charlie Reeb wrote this last week:

“Many who were waving palm branches for Jesus were nowhere to be found when he got the tar beat out of him. Any fan can show up for a parade. It takes a follower to go to the cross. Palm Sunday can either be a tailgate party before Easter or it can be a preparation to die in order to truly live.” Rev.Charlie Reeb, Pasadena Community Church, St. Petersburg, FL

It is my fervent hope that any follower of Jesus does not move, from the parade of Palm Sunday to the joy of Easter, without walking through the turmoil, pain, and loss of Holy Week as experienced on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. This is the most holy and meaning-filled week of the Christian year. I pray that we all will experience it fully as we celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord.
