The Sovereign Love of God

T he P assion of C hrist


Tuesday of HolyWeek March 30, 2021

Holy Week recalls the events of our Lord’s suffering and death. We recall his triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, his giving of the commandments on Maundy Thursday, his crucifixion and burial on Good Friday, and the solemn vigil of Saturday night before Easter Sunday.

TODAY’S THEME The Servant of the Lord, Isaiah 49.1-7

The Lord sends his Servant not for Israel alone, but as a light to all nations. The Servant of the Lord addresses the “coastlands” and “peoples far away.” He tells them that he has been like a sword concealed or an arrow hidden in a quiver. In the fullness of time, he will be revealed as the chosen one of God, King and Savior of the whole world. God fulfilled his promise by sending the Servant, his own Son Jesus. The Lord draws his concealed weapons to defeat evil and to save humankind, even “to the end of the earth.”
