So what in the world is so “good” about today? In a word–EVERYTHING! This is the day that we remember the death of Christ and on surface level that is horrible. But, his death marks the beginning of the whole world order changing. Everything we assumed about life, God, faith, the way things work has been turned upside down. It forces us to remember this newness that Christ gives to us. We can never assume that things must remain as they are, because we have a God who has died and makes things alive again and again. This is the pattern not just of this day, but of our lives as Christians!
“New Again” is a beautiful song by Brad Paisley and Sarah Evans. It is the Passion Story told through the eyes of Jesus’ mother Mary. As you watch this video, what is it in your life that needs to be made new again?
