Brothers and Sisters,
After being out of state for a couple of weeks, it is good to be home. This weeks links will help you focus on the Holy Week and how you can meditate well on the cross and resurrection.
My wife suggested that we should teach the kids what happened each day of the week and I thought it was a good idea for our family. This first link by Justin Taylor is a really helpful scriptural look at what happened each day of the Holy Week (along with a map of events). For future reference you might consider this book.
This next one is a small collection of resources from Desiring God Ministries (John Piper), that offer some good truths to help meditate of the Gospel.
This next one is a short post on some counseling implications looking at the burial of Jesus.
Biblical counselors celebrate the gospel because we encounter sin every day. We are sinners saved by grace who counsel other sinners in need of grace. We should give thanks that Jesus’ tomb was filled because it changes everything for us”
Lastly, this is a really cool video showing the history of redemption using just Scripture and pictures. It is well worth your time.

I hope these are a blessing to you and your families. I look forward to worshiping with you this coming Sunday. God Bless.
By His Grace,
