It's Good Friday!
In this peculiar time we remember -not in the ways we may normally do - the life, death and resurrection of our Saviour. Today, His betrayal is on my heart. He was abandoned by his friends. He prayed earnestly that this wrath would be taken away, but that it wouldn't be his own will, but the Father's good, perfect will, to be done.
What a true, honest picture of his suffering. We may feel that suffering today. Whatever is going on in our lives right now, we can remember that He suffered, that He knows what it's like; our prayers offered to Him land on the ears of one who knows.
We remember that God's plan was for Christ to come. For his creation to be restored through the sacrifice of His son. We have this opportunity to be reconciled to God and what a wondrous, amazing gift! This pandemic has nothing on us. Our sin is the greatest pandemic to cover the world, and the life, death and resurrection of Jesus has redeemed us from it!
While we celebrate a little differently this year, it's good for us to learn to practice and demonstrate our faith in new ways, being creative and intentional is something, perhaps all our families need. Be blessed as you remember the sacrifice of Jesus this weekend, and the hope we have in Him!
