Holy Week ~ Opening Thoughts (Palm Sunday)

After all they have seen and heard, the disciples did not get it.

Greetings Dear Reader,

Palm Sunday is the last day that the followers of Jesus will feel unbloodied joy. There is still a level of innocence to their faith that will die on Thursday. They think they love God.

Jesus felt all that we felt without failing. By Thursday, even Jesus will feel the loss of innocence as he wrestles alone in the garden with what lies ahead. What we see today is Jesus being welcomed to Jerusalem as King. The people all want the earthly things he offers like freedom and peace. What they are still rejecting is that their hearts do not love the Father as he desires.

Jesus will spend the week showing his followers what is to come and in turn, they will all choose something over love for him and the Father. Each of his followers, from the furthest to the closest will decide that something other than Jesus is worthy of pursuit. What I will pursue are ways in which I can love the Father more fully through the example of Christ amidst the abandonment of those who follow him.

We never do enough for each other, Dear Reader. Join me as we spend Holy Week seeing how love is abandoned until it costs the world everything that matters and then how it is resurrected by the Father for the reclamation of us all. As always, I cherish your thoughts and questions.

Wishing you joy in the journey,

Every human story is part of the great story that leads to the Father getting everything back to Good.
