To Live and to Die (in Christ)

John Calvin to live and die for Christ

The Holy Week moves on. Good Friday is two days away. Then two more days and we celebrate Easter Resurrection. 

The focus of this Holy Week is always on Christ. Christ crucified and Christ risen again. Our focus is on the work of Christ, the sinlessness of His life, the love that made possible his sacrificial suffering and the power that raised Christ from the dead. 

We are always the "Graced Ones" or the ones who receive grace.
We are always the "acted upon." The work of Jesus is always prior.
We are always those dependent on and connected to the Source which is Father, Son and Spirit.

The message of Holy Week is that God has acted decisively, graciously, powerfully, effectively and REDEMPTIVELY to do for us what we could not and can never do for ourselves.

Nothing can take the place of THAT message.
