Holy Week — Holy Monday

Holy Monday — Holy Week 2020This post is the Holy Monday installment of my Holy Week series of devotions for my church.

Today’s devotion is from Mark 11:12-25, followed by a reading and a song. You may find the whole series here.

Beginning yesterday with Palm Sunday, millions of Christians around the world began observing “Holy Week” or “Passion Week,” — a week remembering the last days of Jesus’ earthly ministry leading up to his crucifixion and burial.

Right now, our world is walking through its own weeks of uncertainty, fear, and danger. What better place to turn for comfort and hope, than to Scripture?

This week, my church will walk with Jesus’ disciples through their own week of uncertainty, fear, and danger. We will revisit the actions and words of our Lord, finding hope, peace, and salvation in Him.

Each day during Holy Week 2020, we will publish a brief service that includes a song, a reading, and a devotion reflecting on events of that day in that last week of Jesus’ ministry.

Would you join me for Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, Spy Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday for this format of service. Then, on Good Friday, we will publish a longer service of readings, songs, and a devotion.

Please share this with those who may miss their Holy Week services due to shelter-at-home precautions.
