Good Friday

Today was a day of suffering, of betrayal, of sacrifice, of sadness and of death.  It was a day that broke the heart of God. It was a day that had to happen so that we all could be WITH God.  It was a day that no greater LOVE could have been shone...

...a day that One laid down His life for ALL.

John and I watched 'The Passion of the Christ' last night. 

It's a hard one and I never want to watch it because it so realistically portrays the suffering endured on our behalf.  It's easy sometimes to go through our walk only thinking about the good stuff...not the hard stuff.  Sometimes we need to come down from our mountain and remember the sacrifice that was made for all of mankind so that we could be reconciled to the Creator of our world, our universe. 


Because of what He endured over 2000 years ago, we can have peace and joy...we do not have to live in fear or shame.  We have a secure future, not one of mystery or unknown. 

Accept.
Believe.
Confess.

And we will be WITH Him!

This is a day to Remember.
