It is Holy Week and Jesus is on his way to the cross. His eyes are fixed on his mission, the reason for the Word becoming flesh. He will overcome the world, sin and death through his spilled blood and broken body. The sound of his blood flowing from his body is louder than crowds call out “Hosanna” and more intense than the angry mob screaming, “Crucify Him!” The voice of the creation is drowned out by the voice of the creator saying, “This is my son in whom I am well pleased.” It is too easy to forget about all that this week means as we prepare to enjoy time with friends and family. We too easily forget the dark cloud that blocks out the sun. The dark cloud of sin, the reason for Jesus and his journey to the cross. He would sweep the blackest of clouds away with one movement of his hand as his voice says, “Let there be light!” A new day dawns with sin and death defeated on that glorious Easter morning. Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord! His voice calls to us on this day and his voice is the only one that matters.
