How do you reflect upon Holy Week?

As I ponder our Lord's journey to the cross, I am overwhelmed with emotion. Remembering once again the love that compelled Him, with the weight of the cross upon His back, to stumble up Calvary's hill to endure an excruciating death for me, for you, I am washed anew with a grateful heart and a stronger desire to serve Him with everything in me.

To keep our focus on Holy Week, along with the study of God's Word, Hubby and I plan to watch a few old movies, "Ben Hur," "The Ten Commandments," and Friday night, "The Passion of Christ." True enough, Hollywood isn't a good substitute for His Word--so by all means, study His journey to the cross in the Bible--but the movies are another way to help us remember.

Sometimes we brush aside familiar stories and neglect to take the time to remember what they truly mean to our lives. Life gets busy and distracting. With all the chocolate bunnies and baskets it's easy to gloss over Easter and miss the blessing of it all. I encourage each of you to pause this week and reflect on what God has done for you through the sacrifice of His Son.

Please feel free to share if you have any ideas that might help the rest of us keep our focus on Holy Week.

I love those movies and they do help remind me of what the Lord did for me. Reading the Word and watching movies made from God's book is the best! Happy Resurrection Day, Di!!
