As Filipinos, celebrating the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ every year is culturally ingrained in us. Holy Week has become a tradition for most, if not all, of us, but this time, let us take this time to reflect on the importance of Jesus’ life and sacrifice not merely for inspiration, but so that we can persevere in the purpose of God in our lives and in His mission.
The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is crucial to our faith. When we have a good understanding of these, we can truly live out the life we have in Him and help others know Him and the life He offers as we proclaim His gospel.
Join us in the next two weeks as we learn more about these topics:
- Week 1: Christ’s Death (April 10)
- Week 2: Christ’s Resurrection (April 17)
As we take this time to remember Jesus’ life and sacrifice, we also have an 8-day devotional that is available on the Victory groups app. You may also download it here:
We hope that this will help us reflect on and respond to Jesus’ life and His sacrifice for us.
You may join us in our weekend worship services by checking the schedules here or visiting your Victory location’s Facebook page.
As Filipinos, celebrating the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ every year is culturally ingrained in us. Holy Week has become a tradition for most, if not all, of us as it affects what we eat, how we act, and what we say for about a week or so. Even though most of us know the why in our minds, we tend to miss upholding the why in our hearts.
From March 28 to April 4, let us reflect on and dive deep into the passion of Jesus Christ, the reason for our salvation, and see what it means for us today. The monumental event that happened more than 2,000 years ago is not just a historical fact; it can and will change the way we live and bring us back to our original purpose in God. More than a time to mourn or reflect, we can celebrate because we know that through Jesus’ sacrifice, we can experience His love, healing, glory, and victory in our lives.
We have provided devotional materials for you to use as you observe the Holy Week in your homes safely. You may download them here:
We hope and pray that as we reflect on the finished work of Christ and His mission for us, we can be salt and light to others and bring God’s kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.
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.
In a time of fear, uncertainty, and grief, we can find new hope in Jesus Christ. He is the hope of our salvation and our hope in every situation.
For the first two Sundays, we are looking at the life of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke. Then, on May 31, June 7, and June 14, we are going to learn about the Holy Spirit and how we are empowered to minister. The Holy Spirit enables us to live godly lives, heals our brokenness, and fills us with boldness to proclaim God’s Word.
Here are the topics for this series:
- Week 1: April 5 (Palm Sunday)
- Week 2: April 12 (Resurrection Sunday)
- Week 3: May 31 (Pentecost Sunday)
- Week 4: June 7 (Spirit-Empowered Prayer for Healing)
- Week 5: June 14 (Spirit-Empowered Prayer for Boldness)
We pray that this series will encourage, strengthen, and give you new hope during this global crisis. May God keep you and your families safe!
