Maundy Thursday is remembered as the day Jesus washed the disciples' feet. The name itself reminds us of the new mandate or command Jesus gave to love one another as He has loved us (John 13:34). The washing of feet, normally reserved for the lowest servant, is Jesus' way of demonstrating that kind of love. They then ate the Passover, but Jesus gave new meaning to the old rituals. He called the bread His own body given for them for the forgiveness of their sins; He called the wine His own blood, shed for them for the forgiveness of sins. This is no mere symbolism. Jesus says the bread and wine are no longer merely bread and wine but are, by His Word, His own body and blood. Lutherans have tried to resist attempts to explain how, preferring to take Jesus at His Word and believe that it is so.

Today we observe the second great act of the "holy Triduum," the death of our Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary's cross. While the name of the day may come from the phrase "God's Friday" it is, despite its horror, a good Friday. Virtually since the very beginning of time, man's sin has infected the whole world. Sin separates us from God and one another, sin turns us inward, sin brings upon us the penalty of death. Today we remember the cure for sin, the self-giving sacrifice of Jesus in our place. His death is the cure for our sin, the payment of our debt.

Easter Worship - April 16
Easter is truly about the resurrection of our Lord. On this day Jesus, crucified and entombed, rose from death and validated the sacrifice He made for sin on the cross. Though there may be no harm in pursuing some of the secular Easter activities, there is great benefit in immersing ourselves in the community of faith as it celebrates that Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!
