Spring has a way of introducing us with new life, just as the spiritual season this time of year. As we enter Holy Week, with the celebration of Palm Sunday, we consider an Act of Love which changed the dynamics from darkness into light in Resurrection Life. Holy Week offers Christians a chance to celebrate their faith in honor of Christ this week in special remembrance. It is an intense time in reflecting this journey of Jesus beginning with his entrance into Jerusalem riding on a lowly donkey, and people proclaiming Hosanna! We recall the Last Supper, washing of the disciples' feet, the agony in the garden, the consequent betrayal and arrest of Jesus which led to His torture and death on the Cross. This end was only the beginning culminating in a risen Lord who impacted the world in influence and effect on history.
Who is Jesus... really? The following passage is taken from this same written article:
"Throughout history the influence Jesus had on the lives of people has never been surpassed. No other great leader has inspired so many positive changes in the lives of his followers. People who encounter the risen Christ are totally transformed. Their outlook on life is altered forever. Staying true to their faith, they do not hesitate to face hardship, persecution and even death. Many devote their lives to serving others, minimizing their own needs and desires."
