It is Holy Week. The time of year when we are to reflect on the events towards the end of Jesus life here on earth. His entire time here was the plan of God the Father, in order to reconcile sinners with God. His birth, his baptism, his time in the wilderness, his teachings, his miracles, his hard lessons and the events of this week, his death on the cross and his resurrection.
There is no person you will ever meet on earth who loves you as much as Jesus and no person on earth that will do as much for you as Jesus has done. There is so much anger, violence and hatred among the human race and for some reason people love to display this darkness. There is also love, joy, peace and contentment if you have taken the time to invite Jesus into your heart and you have followed that up by showing your commitment to Him. He is available to all of us…he even told us so when he was here and had it written down in the bible.
I pray we all take the time to invite or re-invite Jesus into our hearts this week and be open to God’s plan for our own life. When you look at Jesus time on earth there was evil, suffering and difficult decisions…there was quiet times in prayer, time to help and serve others and at the end of it all there was eternal joy!
God’s peace be with you…Jesus said:
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up and thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you. This is my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”
