Gothic cathedrals are not merely beautiful; they are sublime—they simultaneously make you feel small and maybe even a little afraid while at the same time giving you a feeling of exhilaration.

It’s no wonder that when Mary Magdalene saw the risen Christ, she mistook Him for the gardener. Christ is the new and better keeper of God’s garden. And through His body and blood, He restored what the fruit destroyed.

We don’t get to make up our own version of Christianity. The faith delivered once for all is a faith delivered—it was delivered to the saints. It’s a revealed faith. The religions we make up based on our feelings are different religions altogether.

In English, the term “Good Friday” most likely comes from an archaic sense of the word good, which meant “holy.” In fact, in the Greek-speaking church, the day is called “the Great Friday” or “Holy Friday.” In German, it’s called “Sorrowful Friday.”

A paradox is “Truth standing on her head to get attention.” Our aversion to truth is so strong that God often finds it necessary to employ extreme measures to get us to see past the lies we have embraced. Never was this truer than on “Good Friday.”

What to pray for this week: Ask God to awaken the moral imagination of culture to see abortion as a human rights issue, not a preference issue. Pray God would reveal the truth about the shared humanity of the unborn. Download 21 Days of Prayer for Life!

In J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Return of the King, the hobbit Sam sees Gandalf the wizard back from the dead and exclaims, “I thought you were dead! But then I thought I was dead myself. Is everything sad going to come untrue?”

So here’s a question: Is Christianity about service or salvation? It’s a question that divides the church. But today reminds us, it’s both.

As we remember the events of Holy Week, we have an advantage that Christ’s first followers did not. We look backward. Not only that, we also have the benefit of watching the shift in the disciple’s perspective from looking forward to looking backward.

What to pray for this week: Ask God to grant pregnancy center workers and counselors the wisdom to present the truth. Pray they would see morality exists outside themselves, and they are answerable to God. Download 21 Days of Prayer for Life!

What is the foundational truth of all reality? And how does that truth shape the way we live in the world? That is the topic of a presentation John Stonestreet delivered at Focus on the Family in preparation for Easter.

We encounter the world through our senses—the things we hear, see, touch, taste and smell. They affect our bodies, our minds, and also our souls. No wonder Paul urges us to focus on those things that are pure and lovely and worthy of praise.

Friedrich Nietzsche proclaimed cathedrals to be nothing more than the sepulchers of God. Of course, God is not dead, but He is long forgotten in so many places where people were once inspired to build edifices for His worship, places like Notre Dame.

Whenever tragedy strikes, there is the temptation to guard ourselves against caring too much about a given problem in particular in light of the problems general to the world, to see Christian love as disinterested, indiscriminate, and unfocused.
