Today, as we remember the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us, we are reminded to mimic His example of loving – the greatest love of laying down one’s life for his friends.
This Maundy Thursday, we remember how Christ, the King of Kings, humbled Himself to wash His apostles’ feet. This is the true meaning of leadership – a servant first and foremost, and a leader next.
Today is Holy or Spy Wednesday, commemorating Judas Iscariot’s betrayal of Jesus but, more importantly, the actions of the woman with the expensive perfume. She knew her priorities and acted on them; I invite you to do the same.
This Holy Week, we are reminded of the ultimate gift of God for us, represented by this word, so that we may enjoy eternal life with Him. This week’s Word is “grace”.
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, humble, and mounted on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” (Zechariah 9:9, NASB)
