As we begin our journey through the passion week, I pray that you connect afresh with Jesus. We remember him through the passover meal and the meal that he left us with. We remember his death on a Roman cross and we celebrate his resurrection on Sunday.
It is right to renew our commitment to Jesus at this time of year and to repent of our own self directed lives when we reflect on his death . However we should also remember that Jesus died for restoration! Restoration of relationship with God but also restoration to ministry. The servant in Matthew 26:50-54 who's ear was cut off was disfigured and therefore unable to ever serve in the temple, Jesus not only healed him but restored his ministry. If Jesus does this for someone who wanted him dead how much more will he do for those who love him?
May you be richly blessed in your time of reflection in the next few days.
