Great Friday!

 The most holy of days.  The Eastern church looks at the Incarnation with almost the same respect as we give the events of this day.  They say that the Son’s condescension in becoming human was as sacrificial as His death on the cross.  They may be right, I don’t know.  All I know is that the events we celebrate on this day are ours.

The rest of the world joins us in celebration on Easter.  They don’t know what the big deal is all about, what the resurrection means.  But this day is ours.  No one understands what the sacrifice of Jesus means to us except those who are with us. 

He loves you!  Knowing what you have done and what you will do, He went to the cross for you.  He accepts you and values you and desires a relationship with you so passionately that He considered the cross pure joy because He would meet you there. 

No wonder they call this day, “GOOD!”

  2. Amen. Today, almost five years later, as I am reading my way through Pastor Dave’s blog from the beginning, I just happened to read this post on a Good Friday, which is today, two days before an early March Easter.

    Amazing love, how can it be
    That You, my God, should die for me.
