a very good Friday

Today is a solemn, yet beautiful reminder.

So often we forget the hands that nailed Jesus to the rugged cross. We forget whose sin weighed so heavily on his beaten, bleeding chest. It was ours. Mine. Yours. The world's. Christ died to help those incapable of helping themselves. To breathe life into our lifeless lungs. To rescue the lost. To heal the broken. To redeem our wayward souls.

Today and every day, I am incredibly thankful and undeserving of my beautiful Savior who went to such great lengths to redeem His creation. Let us love and sing and wonder and praise our great Redeemer today.

Let us love the Lord who bought us
Pitied us when enemies
Called us by His grace and taught us
Gave us ears and gave us eyes

He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He presents our souls to God

Amen. Last Easter I took my daughter to a Passion play that is put on by the Christian university that I attended before I got married. Its a very involved/realistic experience. (There are pyrotechnics and flying angels when Jesus is resurrected) To experience that through the eyes of a child was amazing. Thank you for his reminder.
