Silent Wednesday

Today is Silent Wednesday or also referred to as Spy Wednesday. From a scripture perspective there is no record of what exactly happened that day or what activities Jesus had planned.

What we do know is that most Israelites were preparing themselves spiritually for the largest event of the year, Passover. So even though the bible is silent we still see it as a time that they used to prepare and meditate on what God had in store for them.

The practical take away today is this; purpose can be found in silence. Often times there are areas of our lives that we feel as if God is or has been silent in. Maybe it’s your marriage, your family, a diagnosis you or a loved one received and maybe even a sudden tragedy.

Just because Jesus has been silent in your life doesn’t mean he’s not at work in your life. Instead, meditate and reflect on the things he has in store for our lives.

Come celebrate the gift our savior has given us this weekend and experience Easter at Cornerstone! Extend an invitation to your friends and family to join you at our Baxter Campus in Wildomar with this Facebook Event or invite them to join you at our Menifee Campus. We can’t wait to share what we have planned!
