Focus on Christ during Holy Week

Published 9:31 pm Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Below are portions of scripture to help us focus our attention on Christ during Holy Week.

Isaiah 42:1-4: Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations. He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his teaching the islands will put their hope.

Matthew 26:14-16: Then one of the Twelve — the one called Judas Iscariot — went to the chief priests and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver. From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over.

His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
