Article, "Holy Week"
Commemorating Christ's death and resurrection begins in silence. It has something to do with reflecting deeply on what He has done for us in our mind.
However, to remember Christ's saving work cannot be a mere intellectual affair. It is also very much a matter of the heart.
By faith, we get to grasp the meaning of His death on the cross. By His Spirit, we experience His love and presence.
Thus our knowledge and understanding of Christ' death and resurrection this Holy Week are in a profound sense beyond words. There needs to be that mysterious work of the Holy Spirit.
If we think we can contain Christ with our head knowlege, our words, or our theology, we are grasping far less than what is real in our relationship wih Him.
May we commemorate Christ's death and resurrection this holy week through both head and heart as well as His Spirit.
