In many contexts, Holy Week is traditionally a time for reflection on the suffering, death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. And in this season where most of the world is reeling from a pandemic, as believers, we can take this time to be in God’s word like never before.
We have prepared a four-day devotional to help you understand and appreciate Christ’s finished work on the cross and His resurrection. The English and Filipino versions of the devotional are available in the links below and the Resources tab on the Victory app.
Holy Week Devotional
We also encourage you to read the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. Let’s come before God and focus on His unchanging character and promises amidst the news and noise.
We pray that this will be a time where we will find new hope in Christ for our lives, our families, our communities, and our nation.
Our new series, “Forward,” will take us through nine key qualities of a growing, fruitful disciple. As we aspire to a greater, more exciting walk with Jesus, we can take active steps towards growing deeper in our relationship with Him.
Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—3if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.
– 1 Peter 2:2,3
We know that our relationship with God grows and becomes deeper and more meaningful when we go deeper into the Word. To challenge us to develop that discipline and desire to read God’s Word, we invite everyone to participate in our 21-Day Bible Reading Challenge!
Join us and commit to going deeper in the Word every day for the next three weeks! You will be asked to do the following:
- Set a time and place to read the Bible every day.
- Commit to using our Reading Plan, based on Psalm 119.
- Use a notebook and pen (or your preferred device and software) to record insights.
- Practice S.O.A.P.:
- Scripture—Read a portion of Scripture slowly and thoughtfully.
- Observation—Reflect on the Word. What does the Word say about God and the people in the passage?
- Application—Apply the Word. Does it reveal an attitude to change, a sin to forsake, a specific promise to claim, an
- example to follow, a command to obey? What did you learn from this passage, and how will you apply it in your life?
- Prayer—Respond to the Word in prayer.
