Today, this most Holy and solemn of all our celebrations, I remember. Today, I am humbled by Jesus great sacrifice for me.....human, sinfilled, mistake prone, graceless, me. Today, for me, Jesus bled. Today, for me, Jesus was betrayed. Today, Jesus looked into the vastness of eternity and carried my sin, my disgrace all the way to the cross on the hill.
Today, I am somber. Today, I am quiet. Today, I am reverent. Sunday there will be joy. Sunday there will be triumph. Sunday there will be eternity. But today I sit in reverent gratitude for all my Saviour suffered for me. Today I remember the sky grew as black as night. Today I remember the temple veil was forever rent in two. Today I remember earthquakes and the dead come to life. Today I remember rivers of blood, unimaginable pain, undeserved mercy, unfathomable grace.
This blog gives glimpses into my life. Those glimpses reveal the mundane, the important, the foolish, and the sweet moments that make my life what it is. Today on Good Friday I would be remiss if I did not give you a glimpse at the most important person in my life. He is the reason that I am who I am. He gives me the grace to live the daily life I live. He is my sanity, He is my forgiveness, He is my grace, He is my Lord. His love has saved me, His mercy has redeemed me and it is to him I owe everything. His name is Jesus and He loves you too. I know not all of you who read my blog know Him. I know some of you actually judge Him by the humanity and weakness you see in people ,like me, who claim to be His children. Oh, but He is not us. He is perfect love, He is perfect grace, He is perfect righteousness, He is perfect forgiveness, He is perfect Holiness....He is perfect peace. He is waiting for you. He loves you. He already knows everything you have done and will do and He still loves you. This is my Jesus. I pray that He is your Jesus too.
