Jesus, the Son of God

Spring 2011 is a reality. God’s creation is showing signs of new life and His

beauty in new buds, blooms, and flowers. This year we will celebrate the resurrection,

the new life of Jesus during this month. I have just surveyed the April

calendar and have concluded that we had better not just be alive, but be alive in

an energetic fashion.

Of course our focus will be upon Holy Week, the time from Palm Sunday to Easter

Day. We will recall the last week of the earthly life of Jesus, one compacted

with many incredible teachings and events. We will rejoice again in the center of

our faith, the death and resurrection of Jesus. Our focus will include the solemn

observance of Maundy Thursday (21st) through music and quiet meditation.

During this month we will worship the risen Christ every Sunday. On the first

Sunday our worship will center around the memorial meal that Jesus gave us

(3rd). On the other three days of our Lord I will share messages that convey the

relationship of Jesus with Jerusalem. We will examine His journey to the city,

His arrival at the city, His death outside the city, and His preparation for us in the

heavenly city.

Holy Week is a time when our culture hears the Christian community affirm our

faith in special times of worship and communion. Pasadena Faith in Action is designed

to capitalize upon that attention. On the day preceding Holy Week (16th),

we will join with other Jesus followers in Pasadena to “wash the feet of others”

by serving in practical home clean up and fix up projects. In this way several

hundred of us can literally be the visible presence of Christ in providing acts of

ministry and kind service to others in the name of our Savior.
