Holy Week is a striking reminder of the risen Christ and the richness of God’s redemptive audacity and limitless love for us.
How did the world look through Jesus’ eyes in the days leading to the crucifixion? I cannot begin to fathom what He endured.
I can only savor the unwavering promises rendered to me in the wake of the Cross… and thank Him for fulfilling the plan His Father fashioned long before the foundation of the world…the plan through which I have become an eternal heir.
