Along the Journey – Holy Week

Most of us know the story so well we could tell it in great detail. I wonder why we don’t. We know that Jesus rode into Jerusalem on what we now call Palm Sunday. We know the crowds who cheered Him that day were replaced by a mob screaming for His crucifixion days later. We know He went through humiliation and agony, dragged before men who would pronounce sentence over Him. We know He died a horrific death. We know the tomb was waiting on Friday. We know the tomb was empty on Sunday.

We know Holy Week begins this Sunday. We know that we have many opportunities to share with friends and colleagues about the true meaning of these days. We know that Jesus commissioned His followers to spread the news. We know the news. What will we do with what we know?
