A Good Friday service always gets me thinking, and tonight’s was no different. I don’t really need the instructions to leave in silence, because after what we’ve meditated about during the service, I’m not in the mood to be chatty.
The thing that always gets me about Good Friday is how much we don’t deserve the sacrifice He made. We know that a crucifixion isn’t any ordinary execution. He took ALL of the sins of the world- and think about it, there are a LOT of sins in this world- and he took them on in the form of pain and suffering, so that we wouldn’t have to account for them. Can you imagine what kind of agony he had to endure to make up for all of our sins?
What did we ever do to deserve such a love?
The wonderful thing about this season is that it reminds us that we don’t deserve it, and there’s no way we ever could. And yet He went through it anyway, because He loves us. Isn’t that incredible?
Thank God it’s Good Friday.
