Behind our direction
See this week we celebrate the intention of Jesus’ heart. Yeah, for followers of Jesus, this week embodies, it erupts from the intention of His heart. The week leading into Easter Sunday is known as Passion Week or Holy Week. It is the week that all who love Jesus are freed from the bondage of sin, released from the darkness of evil and elevated to the throne of heaven as they are embraced by the amazing love of the One nailed to the cross.
The cross is the place where the grace of Christ’s kingdom meets with and overcomes the lost state of the kingdom of the world. This week we enter into the shadow of the cross where we find forgiveness, redemption, reconciliation…Amazing Love.
Only love justifies the suffering, only love’s suffering justifies the terrible distress of the world. Only His passion has the power to overcome our pain, darkness and fear. Only His passion offers everything we need…
Let us this week wrestle with the passion of the Christ so as to erupt with the insane love of Jesus. Let us step into the intention of Jesus’ heart so that through the Holy Spirit, we might find the direction and intention of our heart.
Let us grab hold of Jesus’ desire to elevate and love the other by giving of ourselves through our service for the other. Let us this week wrestle for the passion of the Christ so as to become the insane love of Jesus for the sake of the world. Let us wrestle on the inside with His grace so that our lives might become His grace on the outside. Let us this week seek to offer our hearts to the One who offered His life.
Take a moment and listen to David Crowder’s Here’s My Heart and as you do, ask the Spirit to awaken your heart to the truth of this week…
Open your hearts, open His word and enter into His passion…Amen Jesus!
