Even the angels are silent. They know that this is no ordinary walk. They know this is no ordinary week. For hinged on this week is the door of eternity.

Let’s walk with him.
Let’s see how Jesus spent his final days.
Let’s see what mattered to God.

When a man knows the end is near – only the important surfaces. Impending death distills the vital. The trivial is
bypassed. The unnecessary is overlooked. That which is vital remains. So, if you would know Christ, ponder his final days.

He knew the end was near. He knew the finality of Friday… Knowing that he had just one week with the disciples, what did Jesus tell them? Conscious that the last sand was slipping through the hourglass, what mattered? Enter the holy week and observe.

Feel his passion. Laughing as children sing. Weeping as Jerusalem ignores. Scorning as priest accuse. Pleading as disciples sleep. Feeling sad and Pilate turns.

Sense his power. Blind eyes…seeing. Fruitless tree…
withering. Money changers…scampering. Religious leaders…cowering. Tomb…opening.

Hear his promise. Death has no power. Failure holds no prisoners. Fear has no control. For God has come, God has come into your world…to take you home.

Let’s follow Jesus on his final journey. For by observing his, we may learn how to make ours. (from Max Lucado: And the Angels were Silent.)
