As the afternoon continues I glance at the clock.
Good Friday. Three o’clock in the afternoon.
My heart wanders back to my Lord’s crucifixion. Sigh.
No matter how I try to understand, I can’t. I don’t.
But this I know. He took my place. He bore My sin. And yours.
He took upon Himself the sin of all the world and willingly died so that we might live.
Tears press behind my eyes as I type these simple words.
Do you feel His Love today?
In a world that rushes quickly from Christmas carols to Easter eggs, don’t let this moment be stolen from you. It’s all too precious. Too dear. Beyond words to ever language.
The depth of love poured out before a watching, needy world.
Let Him wrap His strong arms of love around you today and draw you close to Him.
Hear Him whisper words of love over you today. Feel His Compassion and Care.
Yes, the world all around us hardly gives a nod to the significance of this day but that does not diminish its importance. It never will.
I gave my life for you. What hast thou given for Me? *
His Love demands my all, I know.
Give thou thyself to Me. *
Yes, Lord, my heart cries again.
Yes, may it ever be yes.
I am Thine O Lord.
* Hymn-I Gave My Life For Thee-Frances Havergal’s first hymn
Such a beautiful reminder of what today actually means to us. Complete obedience to God’s will, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42 NIV)
Thank you, Lord!
