Worship the King. Grow the Kingdom

Holy Week 2020

What Kind of a King?

Holy Week in the time of Corona

Holy Week at Trinity this year is of course going to be unique – but our prayer is that by God’s Spirit the uniqueness of not being on the property and the troubling character of the corona pandemic would remarkably be transformed into a fresh experience of Jesus and his kingdom.

There is a widespread acknowledgement that a better world needs to be born after this pandemic and so it is excellent timing that Christian people should be so focussed on God’s self-sacrificial suffering love. Such love, practised by most, would enable a new and better world to walk out of the corona tomb.

We invite you to prepare the room in which you will participate in the service. Dim the lights or turn them off completely, find a comfortable, upright chair to sit in and invite others to join you (either those in your house, or send the link for this page to friends and family).

Where possible we encourage you to play the video on as big a screen as you are able, preferably a TV if you can access the internet on it or a computer screen.

May God be with us in this time.

Reflection questions

  1. What’s your take on the reaction of the disciples in the passage?.
  2. In his response Jesus says, “Let the little children come to me, do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these”. Jesus  commanded the blessing, blessed with authority; he pronounced them blessed, and thereby made them so.  What kind of a King is Jesus?
  3. Verse 17 says, “Anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”. Twice in this passage Jesus speaks about the Kingdom of God, which means the kingdom was his priority. I think his kingdom news was not well received by people, and that he did not do as they wished. Could this be one of the reasons why they wanted to kill Jesus?
  4. Receive the kingdom of God like a little child: having a simple, trusting attitude. Believe in Jesus.

Read Matthew 15:21-28

  1. What are you like inside? God wants us to seek healthy thoughts and motives.
  2. It is possible to become so occupied with matters that we miss real needs right around us. Instead of being bothered, be aware of the opportunities that surround you. Be open to the beauty of God’s message for all people, and make an effort not to shut out those who are different from you.
  3. Jesus may have wanted to use the situation as another opportunity to teach that faith is available to all people.

For Reflection

  1. God did not soften Joseph’s bumpy road but strengthened him.
  2. We are promised that everything, even discomfort, and inconvenience, has meaning in God’s Plan.
  3. Do you still picture Jesus as a baby in a manger- or is he your Lord? Make sure you don’t underestimate Jesus. Let him grow in your life.
  4. How does the way Jesus was born give you strength in times of hopelessness?
  5. Think about the manger and the cross and see where they meet.

Jesus is your Messiah, Your Saviour. Do you look forward to meeting him in prayer and in His Word each day?
