A Plan for Holy Week

I have not blogged in a while because I gave it up for Lent, but this post is about sanctifying Holy Week in your hearts. 

Monday:  Meditate on the physical pain of Christ, reading Luke's account.

Tuesday:  Mediate on the spiritual pain of Christ being tortured with our sins.  The physical pain is a way for us to see and empathize withe the spiritual pain, which we cannot understand since we are not sinless creatures.  Read II Corinthians 5 and Romans 5.

Wednesday:  Mediate on the depth and awfulness of our sins, corporately and individually, that demanded the payment of the cross.  Romans 3.

Thursday:  Meditate on the mercy and love of God.  Romans 8.

Friday:  Meditate on the humanity of Christ and the human drama of the crucifixion.  Read John's account.

Saturday:  Meditate on what his death accomplished spiritually and eternally.  Colossians 1 and 2.

Sunday:  Meditate on the power of the resurrection; ask, What would you have me do, Lord? because of this Holy Week observance.
