Good Friday

Well, today is Good Friday, but really, how many of us take the time to remember what this day is all about? If you have never been touched by God, this blog is not for you. (I didn't say "if you don't believe in God" because God's existence does depend on our belief). But if you do believe, join me in my thoughts of this day.
We have had Easter homecoming at my church the past few nights, sharing communion and all. And it was amazing. And humbling. To think that Jesus, who was with God, and was God, in the beginning, and in the end, and is the Word that brought all things into existence. Jesus CHOOSE to leave heaven to come to this sin filled world, for me. Yes, he was the Son of God, but he was also the Son of Man. If Jesus came just for our salvation, he would have just died, but he did so much more.
Yes, He came for our salvation, but he also came so that we might have life abundantly, here, today, in this life and in this world. He was betrayed by a kiss (how many of us have been hurt by a friend?), but did not respond in kind. He chose to lay down his life according to God's will for fallen man. Then he was beaten, whipped, teased, made fun of, rejected, and THEN crucified. Why???? Because of his love for me. Yes me. If I was the only person in the history of the world that accepted his gift, he would have done all this just for me. But he didn't do it just for me, he did it for you, whether you believe in him or not.
This was a sad and dark day for man. But the best is yet to come. See you all in 3 days!
