“Easter, 2017, What Difference Will It Make?”, Pastor Doug’s Devotional, April 5, 2017

Dear Friends,

For many years I have asked the men I work with and our congregation not to get so busy during the Easter season that we miss what God has for us, to help mold us into the people of God He deserves us to be. I have asked this question, each year, of myself and many others, as we walk through what is called “Holy Week” “What difference will the Easter season make in our life?”

May I encourage you to join me in following the Lord through the events of this week asking God to grow us, deepen us and develop us into the person He deserves us to be. I like starting in the Gospel of Luke and his record, beginning with Palm Sunday and walk through the events of the week with our Lord.

The single greatest event in all of human history, “the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ!”

Palm Sunday: Luke 19:28-44
Monday: Luke 19:45-48
Tuesday: Luke 20:1-21:38
Wednesday: Luke 22:1-6
Thursday: Luke 22:7-53
Good Friday: Luke 22:54-23:55
Saturday: Luke 23:56
Resurrection Morning, Sunday: Luke 24:1-12

“Lord, teach us what you have for us so we might honor You with the life we have been entrusted.”

Striving together for His glory,

Doug
