This is Passion week, a week we as Christians remember the historical events that unfolded in Jesus’ final week; Jesus would entered Jerusalem on a donkey. He would be Proclaimed as the messiah by the crowds. Jesus would teach in the temple and confront and be confronted by corrupted religious understandings and thinking. Jesus would celebrate the Passover Seder with his disciples which today we know as the last supper. Jesus would pray in the garden of Gethsemane. He would be betrayed by one of His own followers for 30 pieces of silver. Jesus would be arrested by the religious leaders, He would be unfairly accused and tried, He would be questioned by Pilate the Roman Governor in-charge and here He would ultimately be condemned to death by the religious leaders and those who followed them when given a choice to release one prison Jesus or a violent man who wanted to revolt against Rome. Jesus would be mocked, whipped and crucified, He would be pieced and and He would be buried in a wealthy man’s tomb in a garden just outside the city walls. 3 days Later Jesus’ tomb would be discovered empty, Because Jesus would rise from that tomb – Alive & resurrected to prove who He truly is & and reveal what God had foretold long before. Fulfilling the prophecy that had been written by never fully understood by many. In light of these Covid-19 events. A time of fear and anxiety I would say this to you all. Seek out the face of Christ. For His life Death and resurrection is our Hope in the face of a broken world. For it is HOPE that brings comfort, not COMFORT that brings hope. My Hope is in Christ Paul the apostle puts it like this as he writes to the Corinthians; Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Buzolic wears his faith in Christ boldly. His clothing line and faith-based blog, Palm Sundays, centers on the truths found in the Bible. Buzolic also loves to preach the Gospel, travel and baptize new believers in their Christian faith.
On a different Instagram post, Buzolic affirmed that, “True Christianity is unlike any other belief.”

True Christianity is unlike any other belief. Most religions or religious ideas (including a deformed Christianity that never did or no longer followings the scriptures) often desires you to reflect traditions, superficial behaviors & practices which will make you LOOK set apart FROM others. While uniquely in true Christianity Jesus desires his followers to REPEATEDLY REFLECT him which will make you BECOME set apart FOR others. The difference is; – FOR others instead of FROM others – BEING instead of just LOOKING the Part So What do I mean? As a Christian We believe we are NOT brought to God to be considered ABOVE ALL but rather to SERVE ALL. In doing so we must willingly choose to surrender our most basic human rights of COMFORT in exchange for COMPASSION. Our most basic human rights of HONOR, in exchange for HUMILITY. The apostle Paul in a letter to the Ephesians said this; For by GRACE you have been saved through FAITH; and that not of yourselves, it is the GIFT of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus FOR good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would WALK in them. Ephesians 2:8-10 1. Have you ever met a true Christian? 2. Have you ever become a true Christian? A true Christian; SEEKS a SELFLESS SALVATION completely focused on SACRIFICING for others in an attempt to; SHOW & SHARE the only SAVING & SANCTIFYING STORY of Jesus Christ our SAVIOR; reaching out to those who are STRICKEN, to those who are STRUGGLING and to those who are SADDENED by a SELFISH & SINKING world. In the words of Isaiah the prophet; How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7
