Word Power

Words are known to have power.  The phrase “The pen is mightier than the sword” may have been coined by Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839, but the idea was repeatedly expressed centuries earlier.  Friedrich Nietzsche said, “All I need is a sheet of paper and something to write with, and then I can turn the world upside-down.”  We saw the unfortunate power of words in Nazi Germany when Adolf Hitler realized that “all epoch-making revolutionary events have been produced not by the written but by the spoken word.”  Winston Churchill, an equally brilliant orator, used the power of words to rally Britain and its allies to defeat the Nazis despite overwhelming odds.  Words plant ideas in the mind; ideas turn into thoughts and thoughts turn into actions.

Welcome to Holy Week, that period that spans Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.

As we prepare for the celebration of Easter, this devotional booklet has been compiled to help us follow the footsteps of Jesus during His last week leading up to His death, burial and resurrection. Where did He go? Who did He see? What did He say? Why did He die?

Eight contributors from First Baptist Church have penned these articles. They represent different ages, genders and walks of life. My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will guide us each closer to the Saviour who loved and gave Himself for us as in our imaginations we follow His steps during that first Holy Week.

Easter blessings,
Pastor Dave DuBois
