The countdown is on!

Did you know it’s only 21 days until Easter!
So, 3 weeks before this momentous date in the Christian calendar I wonder where your heart is? Are you feeling tired and ready for the (school) holidays? Or perhaps tired and not ready for the (school) holidays? Are you feeling excited? indifferent? not sure?

Whatever you’re feeling, let me encourage you to take some time, anytime, in the next 20 days to stop and reflect on Jesus’ journey to the cross. If you’re not sure how to do that, perhaps you could start by reading one of the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ death & resurrection (Matthew 27 for example). Or like those who receive the Women’s Weekly Devotions, you could reflect on the words of the hymn, ‘When I survey the wondrous cross’. Or perhaps you could reflect on words of one of the best known passages of scripture, John 3:16.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life”

Easter is coming. Nothing, but God, can stop that. So, how will you approach it? Will you even stop to notice? Will you take the journey of the next 21 days to the cross with Jesus? I hope so.
