Holy Week is Coming!

Sunday, March 29th marks the beginning of Holy Week. We consider this week to be holy because we commemorate the actions and teachings of Jesus his last week before Calvary. It was a very busy week for our Lord. Everything he did was for the glory of the Father and for love of the world. He marched into Jerusalem for Passover, cleaned out the temple, instituted the Lord's Supper, he was convicted of false crimes, tortured, and then crucified. Holy Weeks is a reminder that Jesus went through hell on earth so that you and I could avoid it later. Although the week ended with the death of Jesus the very beginning of the following week would be amazing. It was very early on the first day of the week that Jesus came out of the grave. He defeated death and by doing so he opened the door of eternal life for us. When you think about all that Jesus did out of love for us, surely we can enter next week with a sense of sacredness. Let's do all that we can to honor our Lord by practicing holiness through our prayers, worship, and participation in the ministries of St. James. God bless, EC3
