HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!
I love Holy Week and all that it means to me. Today is Maundy Thursday which is the time when sorrowful Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray, saying "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will." 40And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, "So, could you not watch with me one hour? 41Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." 42Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, "My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done." 43And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. 44So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words again. 45Then he came to the disciples and said to them, "Sleep and take your rest later on.[b] See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand." Then Judas, one of the 12 disciples, betrays Jesus leading Him to his crucifixion. Matthew 26:36-46 gives the account.
Holy week is a time that I think about my own life and look at how I spend my time. I love my morning devotional time and time of prayer. It helps keep me sane in this busy life knowing that God loves us so much that He sent his only son to die for us! Let's all remember that Jesus is the greatest gift we will ever know! Through HIM we are saved!
