Monday of Holy Week is a day that can be almost lost in the daily grind
of everyday life. We’re looking towards Easter, but see no special
significance in this day. We’re waiting for the week to pass, waiting on
Resurrection Day to arrive. Many of us don’t like waiting. It makes us
antsy. But great things can come out of waiting.
Mary and Martha had to wait for Jesus. Lazarus died while they were
waiting. Yet, Jesus didn’t forsake them. He had a miracle in store, and
he raised Lazarus from the tomb. What a great resurrection day that
was! Do you think witnesses to that miracle had their faith
Today, let’s ask Jesus to raise us above any obstacles that prevent us
from drawing nearer to Him. Let’s take a few moments to reflect on the
blessings God has placed in our midst–those both large and small.
