Churches gathered in worship
Every Saturday and Sunday believers around the world are worshiping and celebrating Jesus. It’s the one time during the week where Christians are most likely concentrating on and focusing on Jesus. The Body of Christ is activated in worship, as one, more than any other time during the week. Local churches and congregations all over the world meeting at all hours across the globe in that concentrated period of time.
We are connected by MORE
But The Church is so much more than many individual congregations.
We are connected by more than just the church building where we attend or by the congregation with whom we worship. We are tied together by more than location and physical environments. We are one because of more than the denominational tennents to which we hold. The Church, the entire Body of Christ, consists of all believers, in every church affiliation and every denomination. It’s many, different parts who all belong to each other. It’s many different threads woven together in a beautiful tapestry
This Tapestry is the most evident during Holy Week.
How we celebrate Holy Week
Holy week- Palm Sunday through Easter- the most important celebration of the year in our Christian faith. All across the world, believers of every denomination, of every race are remembering and celebrating the triumphal entry of Jesus on the donkey all the way through his death on the cross and His resurrection.
This is the week where unity, along with oneness, harmony, and belonging, is the most focused, the most concentrated in the Body of Christ. It’s where we focus on the essentials of our faith- the life, death, and resurrection of our Savior. It’s all that really matters. Everything else we do as a church, or as believers, is a result of and flows out of this primary truth.
Imagine Holy Week from God’s Perspective
I wonder what it’s like from God’s point of view to witness this display of adoration and worship each week and every year. How much joy does He receive? How much does He take delight in His Body? We we only really know when we get in eternity
It is foretaste of what eternity will be like.
