Why Meditations on Holy Week?

Why am I doing meditations on Holy Week in a blog about neuropathy? Because we all need hope and assurance that the sufferings of this life are not forever. The events of the crucifixion and resurrection remind us of that fact.

We are more than just physical creatures. Our sufferings affect more than our physical body. We must never lose sight of the higher spiritual reality that true life is more than this transitory, temporal existence.

1 Peter 1:6-9 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and un-defiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.
