Love’s Unveiling: The Message of Easter

5 April, 2014

In the next two weeks, to help us prepare for Easter, I have recorded a set of Bible devotions that will take us day by day through the Easter story all the way to Easter Day on Sunday April 5, 2015.

Week 1

INTRODUCTION: LOVE’S UNVEILING

In the next two weeks, to help us prepare for Easter, I have recorded a set of Bible devotions that will take us day by day through the Easter story all the way to Easter Day on Sunday April 20, 2014.

These devotions include a key verse from Matthew’s Gospel, a short reflection, and a challenge or chance to respond. We will journey with Matthew in his Gospel through the days and hours building up to the Cross and the Resurrection of Jesus. In this series we join Matthew at Chapter 26 as history is reaching its climax. We are invited not just to watch this drama but to respond ourselves. Writing the series I was again reminded that what Matthew writes cannot be laid aside casually. If his Gospel is true, a response is demanded of us. What will I do with this claim? How will I respond to this death. We meet a number of very different characters. Matthew is deliberately detailed in his narration of the events surrounding Jesus’s betrayal, trial execution and resurrection.

I have called the series “Love’s Unveiling — The Message of Easter” reflecting the extravagant love and grace poured out for each one of us. I hope you will find something to excite and challenge you.
