Wednesday is “Holy Week” Day.

Arise my love by Newsong

Not a word was heard at the tomb that day.
Just shuffling of soldiers feet as they guarded the grave.
One day, two days, three days had past.
Could it be that Jesus breathed his last?

Could it be that his Father had forsaken him?
Turned his back on his son, dispising our sin.
Oh hell seemed to whisper, "Just forget it, He's dead."
Then the Father looked down to his son and he said..

Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you
No more death sting
No more suffering
Arise...Arise...my love.

The Earth trembled and the tomb began to shake, and like lightening from Heaven
The stone was rolled away.
And this dead man the guards they all stood there in fright
As the power of love displayed its might
And suddenly a melody filled the air
Riding wings of wind, it was everywhere
The words of creation had been longing to hear.
The sweet sound of victory, so loud and clear.

Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you.
No more death sting no more suffering
Arise...arise....

Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated. The grave will not hold, the king.

Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
Arise....Arise....Arise!



Holy Week in the Christian year is the week immediately before Easter.

It is commemorated by reflecting and celebrating the week. Four specific days are especially important: Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and of course, Easter Sunday.

Palm Sunday begins the Holy Week. Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into the city. It is considered a feast or celebration day. (See Matthew 21:1-11)

Maundy Thursday is also a feast day and one that commemorates the “Last Supper” that Jesus had with his disciples. (see John 13:1-16)

Good Friday is considered a fasting day and one of reflection as this is the day that Jesus gave his life for all. (see Matthew 27:11-56)

And finally, Easter Sunday is a day of celebration for Jesus Christ has risen. It is the most important celebration of the year as a Christian. (see Mark 16:1-8)



While I do love Christmas very much, Easter makes my life as a Christian possible.



Happy Wednesday friends.
