Happy Holy Week!
This is Easter week, also known as Holy Week, the most special week in the Christian faith. Last Sunday was Palm Sunday, commemorating when Jesus entered town and the people hailed Him shouting, “Hosanna to the King.” They spread their coats and palm branches in front of the little donkey that carried Jesus. You can read the accounts of this week on your own. Find the information in the last chapters of the Gospels.
And get ready for giving the correct, traditional response on Easter Sunday. When someone says, “He is risen,” you are supposed to respond, “He is risen indeed!”
And if you have more time than you usually spend in your regular 366 Glimpses devotional reading, read the context of each devotion’s focus verse. That means for you to at least read the entire chapter in which the verse is contained. Then ask yourself these three questions for each chapter:
- What is this chapter saying?
- What does this chapter mean?
- What does this chapter mean for me?
Here are the focus verses and the extended chapters to read:
- March 25 – Ezra 6:14
- March 26 – Ezra 7:9
- March 27 – Nehemiah 4:7-9
- March 28 – Nehemiah 8:1-12
- March 29 – Nehemiah 9:33 (Maundy Thursday)
- March 30 – Esther 4:13-14 (Good Friday)
- March 31 – Job 1:8
- April 1 – Happy Resurrection Day!
Walk more closely with God, deepen your relationship with Him, and give Him glory for who He is every day.
