What Christians call “Passion Week” began yesterday.
It is the climax of our faith. We believe that the week we now observe changed life for all humans, forever. Yet looking back, it is extraordinarily hard to understand the agony that Jesus overcame.
He prayed through the night. He begged. Blood fell from Him-the struggle was so real.
A week spent knowing that death by torture was imminent.
Living enshrouded by a cloud of darkness, unable to fight against it.
He was, and continues to be so good. My heart weeps for passion: His passion that bought us life.
If I tell you, you will not believe, and if I ask you, you will not answer. But from now on the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God.
