In four weeks, we’ll celebrate the main event of our faith: the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Without His victory over death, we would die in our sins with no hope of eternal life.
But, praise God – Jesus arose from the grave. He’s alive! And He’ll return again one day. What’s more, God will raise US up to live with Him forever (1 Corinthians 6:14).
Now, THAT is something to celebrate! And here’s something to get you started: a FREE Easter resource from In Touch Ministries. To grab the link (and short review), keep reading.
Holy Week: A Time for Reflection

Easter Sunday, or Resurrection Day, is the most important day on the Christian calendar. Easter centers on Jesus – His crucifixion and resurrection. Reflecting on His final days leading to the cross can give us a better understanding of our faith.
This year, Holy Week (Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday) is April 9 to 15. Christians throughout history have used this week for reflection. It’s a good time to consider the significance of Christ’s sacrifice and our salvation.
Are you ready for a time of reflection?
Sacrifice and Salvation: 8 Easter Devotions
In Touch Ministries is one of my favorite Christian resources. To help you reflect on Easter, In Touch published Sacrifice and Salvation – eight beautiful devotions in an e-book. This FREE download will enhance your Holy Week experience.
Elegant typography and floral images give the e-book a vintage feel that is lovely for spring. The following devotions (with extra space for notes) will help you reflect on the meaning of Easter:
- Lamb of God
- The Bread
- The Wine
- The Table of Healing
- The Cross of Christ
- Living Expectantly
- Why the Resurrection Still Matters
Sacrifice and Salvation contains curated content from a wider collection of devotions. Six writers contributed to the resource.
Fil Anderson, Winn Collier, Laurin Greco, Ann-Margret Hovsepian, and Matt Woodley are the major contributors.
Charles Stanley, the founder of In Touch Ministries, also shared his thoughts. In “Why the Resurrection Still Matters,” he wrote on the importance of Christ’s resurrection:
“Without the resurrection, Easter would be a big lie, our faith would be worthless, and Jesus Christ’s death would have accomplished nothing.”
– Charles Stanley
What a sobering thought. This week, I dipped into my e-library to read his words (and all the devotions) again. They’re a good reminder of why we celebrate Easter, and I hope you’ll read them, too.
To get YOUR copy of Sacrifice and Salvation, visit the Free Easter Download page on the In Touch website. There, you can save or print the devotional in EPUB or PDF format.
Enjoy your time of reflection, and Happy Easter!
