Holy Week Wednesday

2013-08-15 06.50.41Googling “Holy Week Timeline” is awesome b/c you get a great feed of exactly that.  Jesus.org has a lovely link that includes side-by-side comparisons of day/night cycles of the Jewish culture, with Galilean Jews and our modern cultures day/night cycles.

Wednesday is apparently a ‘silent day’ as there is no record of anything said or done by Jesus.  The site very well states “No record in the Gospels, but much activity {was going on} as Jesus prepares for Last Supper and as Judas and Sanhedrin prepare for Jesus’ arrest”.

A Silent Day.

What would it be like if we spent the day in silent, reflecting on what had already happened that passion week and what was going to happen in the days to come? Maybe you can’t actually be silent all day today, but what if our hearts, minds, thoughts and prayers were all pointed in that direction?

John 16: 13-14 speaks about the Holy Spirit being the “Spirit of Truth”. That “He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak”.  Jesus says the Holy Spirit “will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and disclose it to you”.  Wow.  Is it really that simple?  Us being silent … prayerful … asking … and being reliant upon the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth, revealing Jesus to us?

Join that journey with me today.  One of silent reliance on the Holy Spirit to draw our hearts in to our Father God by revealing what this ‘Silent Day’ must have been like for Jesus amidst the Holy Week.
