A day of reflection. Time to ponder that Christ Jesus would be willing to be unfairly judged, scourged, ridiculed, humiliated, hurt, and hung from a cross for us(If you want to know what he was thinking while on the Cross, read Psalm 22). He was willing to give himself to cruel and sinful men so we can know Him personally and enjoy eternal life, but also to have life more abundantly now. We don't have to wait till heaven to know he intervenes in our lives today. Helping us reconcile with each other, helping us to forgive each other and even ourselves daily. He listens to our conversations with Him and He answers in incredible ways! He is not an out there mystical God though He is omnipresent (in all places), omnipotent (all mighty), and omniscient (all knowing) God, but He is also friend and Savior.
He made all the difference for me on a day like today. Good Friday, Holy Friday. Blessed be His Name! Jesus. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Unashamedly a Christian. If I am ever persecuted for my faith, I hope there is enough evidence to convict me of being a Christian.
