I’ve been thinking about how I should be approaching this week.
Somehow I get the sense that the week prior to Easter is supposed to create some sort of special emotional impact. I don’t feel it, and I wonder if something’s missing.
Normally I don’t get too concerned with what I’m “supposed” to feel. Generally, in fact, I don’t think about following Jesus as a “feeling” issue. I believe it’s a choice, a commitment.
But this is a pretty special week, and a lot of Christians seem to experience an emotional connection to it.
I hope it doesn’t mean I take Jesus’ death and resurrection for granted. I don’t think I do. I believe it’s the pivotal event in history. I appreciate the unimaginable sacrifice and the undeserved gift. I’m incredibly grateful.
But it doesn’t feel different. Should it? Am I missing something?
