Holy Week Devotional 2021
HOLY WEEK 2021
Holy Week chronicles the last moments of Jesus’ life as he drew closer and closer to the cross. From Palm Sunday to the resurrection celebration on Easter morning, the last week of Jesus’ life is a story of jubilation, betrayal, remembrance, and suffering.
Holy Week is the culmination of the season of Lent. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and is forty days of preparation leading up to the resurrection of Christ. Whereas the season of Advent is the joyful anticipation of Christ’s birth, Lent is a time of prayerful preparation as believers ponder the meaning of God’s grace that is extended to all through the death and resurrection of the Messiah.
Palm Sunday and Easter are the bookends for a week of important events. So often we jump from the celebration of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his resurrection a week later. What we miss when we jump from celebration to celebration, is the fulfillment of centuries of God’s promises working themselves out in the person of Jesus Christ. Come with us on this journey through the last moments of Jesus’ life.
