Maundy Thursday

Today is Maundy Thursday. Today we celebrate Christ having his last supper with his disciples. Today he told them that one of the would betray him. Today he prayed in the Garden for the cup to pass him by. Today he prayed "not my will but your will." Today he is arrested.

And so begins the time of remembering Jesus' ultimate sacrifice for us. It is so easy to focus on the celebration of Easter. But we wouldn't have the resurrection without the time before it.
