Throughout Holy Week, we are drawn to Calvary to live in humility, service, sacrifice and new life. The four services for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter guide us in word and song to the cross of Christ, and to the empty tomb.
Palm Sunday • Guided to Humility (James 4:10): Just as Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a humble donkey, we are carried by humility to the cross to receive exaltation.
Maundy Thursday • Guided to Service (Romans 7:6): With water and basin and wine and bread, Jesus shows that he is a servant who gives his all for us, even death on the cross.
Good Friday • Guided to Sacrifice (Hebrews 10:12): Jesus took our place on the cross, offering himself for us that we might offer ourselves as living sacrifices to him.
Easter Sunday • Guided to New Life (Romans 6:4): The empty tomb reveals the power of the crucified Christ to break through the bonds of death to live again that we might live forever.
