What is Holy Week and What Should Christians Do During this Time?

March 29, 2021
Holy Week

For Christians, Holy Week is very important. They use this sacred time to reflect on Jesus’ journey including the final days of His life—death, burial, and resurrection. Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and resumes until Easter Sunday or also called Jesus Christ’s Resurrection.

Holy Week is one of the best times to sit down and create a special bond with our Lord Jesus Christ. This is a sacred time for us to have a deep conversation with Him and reflect on the failings that we have done as human beings. Holy Week is a “spiritual time” for Christians.

Both Catholics and Protestants are using this time to remember the life and death of Jesus. So why is Holy Week so important for many religions?

Holy Week is also called Passion Week. It is called Passion because of Jesus’ Passion to sacrifice Himself in order to pay for the sins of His people. To see the biblical meaning of Holy Week, you can refer to the following Bible books and chapters: Matthew chapters 21-27, John chapters 12-19, Mark chapters 11-15, and Luke chapters 19-23.

As Christian, we are all called to be “passion” with our spiritual life. We should all be willing to passionately do a sacrifice everything just like what Jesus did for us. We don’t need to die or let ourselves be in harm to follow Him. All we have to do is follow His way and proclaim the Gospel—the message of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Holy Week and Meaning of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection for Christians

The resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ is sending us a clear message of hope and faith. It shows to us the truth of life that no matter how deep is our suffering or struggles in life, there’s always hope and that hope will lead us to what we have asked and prayed for.

We may feel like Jesus Christ is not listening to our prayers. We sometimes assume that He is not with us and that He is allowing us to suffer and be in pain. But we all know the truth. God is always with us. We are not alone. The pain you feel today, is the strength you feel tomorrow.

Today might not be your day, but tomorrow can be. What Jesus Christ wants us to do is to just believe in Him. Always trust that His timing is perfect and better than yours. He is present all the time. So be patient and take downtime as a blessing to do enough preparations. And when the time is right, just remember that God will make things happen.

Use this Holy Week as an opportunity to ponder and thank God for all the blessings that you and your family are receiving. Remember to trust the process and be patient. All things are possible if you put your TRUST in HIM.

Happiness is a State of Mind

Life is full of numerous challenges that often cause stress and anxiety to a person. They feel that they can no longer stand all the issues they’re facing. In some cases, individuals think they have the worst job in the world. Others imagine they have the worst illness; they really feel that no person can understand what they’re going through.

What is a state of mind? a state of mind is a momentary psychological state, the emotional and intellectual material of our mind at a particular time.

Generally, it’s a mix of feelings and thoughts, which is developed by exactly how we really feel inside. This is a result of how we respond to our outside world, in different scenarios, with different individuals, places, and so on.

A state of mind can be created by external aspects that have an impact on our lives.

Trust Him

We always assume that we know what is best for us. Numerous times we attempt to step in with our two cents to discover that when we try to change our current situation, we make things even worse. After that, we regret what we have actually done and hope we could make things go back the way they should be. 

On a spiritual note, among the lessons we need to learn is accepting God’s Will. Life would certainly be a lot less complicated if we could accept that God recognizes what is better for us. If we can take a look at the moments in our lives that we hindered God’s Will, we will eventually realize that we messed things up extremely on our own and deeply prayed to him to return things the way they were.

The next time we think that God is not listening to us and things are getting out of control, we just need to sit back, loosen up and take a deep breath. We should give God an opportunity to let things happen according to his will. If we contemplate, we would certainly find that if God had actually paid attention to our grievances and allow us to do things our way, things might not have been in our best interest in any way.

Happiness is a mindset. If we believe that God is refraining from what is best for us, we will certainly be miserable. If we understand that we are living according to what God yearns for us and that God is giving us what is best, we would be more than happy and contented.
