Many of us will be marking this day with Good Friday services and observances. This is the day that we meditate; we pray; we marvel at the gift of God's love. This God in human flesh, who never, ever sinned, loved us so much that he gave Himself to buy our salvation.
He was humiliated and tormented by the tiny, sin-wracked beings that He created and loved. They spat upon Him, lashed Him, and placed Him on the cross.
He could have called ten thousand angels . . . but He did not. Please listen to the words (if you prefer, you can click to begin, and then look away. Just absorb the music and the words -- don't be distracted by the pictures or by the singers) of these wonderful songs. Consider them reverently and pray, if you will. He died for me, and He died for you. Yes, this is just part of the wonderful story -- but I am in tears as I write. Amazing, wondrous love.
Yes, He was the Lamb that was worthy . . .
I'll have a Sunday post this week -- a reminder of the second (and the best) part of the story!
