Easter Week

by sandihester

All heaven is interested in the cross of Christ, all hell terribly afraid of it, while men are the only beings who more or less ignore its meaning.  Oswald Chambers

We’re halfway through Easter week.  If you’ve taken time to stop and look at this blog I want to encourage you to take time to stop and remember your Savior today too.  Don’t let the business of the week cause you to ignore the importance of this week.  Take time to savor Christ this week.  Take time to taste Him, to look upon Him, to meditate on Him, and after you’ve done all that – take time to praise Him this week.  May we get less caught up in bunnies and eggs and more focused on the death and resurrection.  Some suggestions of things to do to savor Him this week: watch the Passion, read from the gospel accounts of what took place during this week and look-up where they were prophesied (using the cross references in your bible), use a devotional to help you focus on Jesus and what He did for us (Grady and I are using a devotion that John Piper’s wife, Noel, wrote titled “Lenten Lights” – for some reason I keep calling it lentil lights 🙂 – oh brother!), play music that focuses on Christ’s death and resurrection, etc. 

I did this piece of art work years ago.  I love this quote by Oswald Chambers and I did a piece like this for Christmas gifts one year.  Let’s not ignore the meaning of the cross this week – savor it with me.
