MONDAY, March 30   Monday in Holy Week

Isaiah 42:1 “Here is my servant, whom I uphold.”

One of the pictures I treasure the most captures me holding my son shortly after his birth. I remember clearly how much he depended on us and how in the first couple of months of his life, he seemed so helpless in my arms. The picture reminds me of a time when I was entrusted to care for his every need.

Holy Week is a reminder to surrender like a child to the faithfulness of God. We are truly on a journey, like newborns, held and upheld by God. Holy Week invites us to journey with Jesus in new ways. We are called to journey with Jesus in faithfulness to God’s call.

The Good News of God in Christ this week is that we are loved, supported, and upheld by God. Faithfulness and prophetic living in response to God’s love may come at a cost for many of us. There is a cost to discipleship, and there is a cost to being a servant of God.

As we journey this week, may we know that God upholds us.
