There will be some who do not regard the days of Holy Week as anything special. They attempt to say that they regard every day alike. Their argument is that we don’t know the specific date of these events; that we are not commanded to observe these days; and that the events of this week should be remembered every day.
All of that is true. I must confess that I do esteem these days as significant. It helps me worship Christ. I am weak. So weak that I need these reminders. I confess that I do not think of the resurrection as often as I should. In fact, I do not think of all that God is as I ought.
I am thankful that Christ died and lived again for us both. These days that I esteem are “to the Lord.” I will boast in my weakness. For when I am weak, He is strong! Christ is my only hope. Praise be to God that Christ laid in that cold, dark tomb this day some 2000 years ago for those who would put their hope in him. All I have is Christ!
Romans 14:5-9 One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
