Today, today is one of those days you are grateful because it means everything when you look at what it stands for….Good Friday. If we didn’t have this day, the cross, we wouldn’t have the third day of his rising. It makes me feel a bit on the gloomy side just reading this morning what He endured. It never stops surprising me. I think one of the big things that hit me as I was reading it this morning was the part where the soldiers came to get Jesus from the garden and in protection of Jesus one of the disciples cut off the soldiers ear. Jesus told the disciple to not resist and then turned to HEAL his ear! Wow, this makes me think, as much as Jesus had every right to let that ear remain off of that man’s head after knowing what he was going to endure at the hand of this man, DESPITE HIS FEELINGS, He still healed him. Also, knowing that God just can’t fight being who He is and that is a HEALER, even when not deserved by the one receiving.
Today, is a good day because of what we have to look forward to, our salvation, but it is also a day to remember our Lord who was so mistreated yet loves us even in the midst of the evil we are capable of.
Thank you Lord for forgiving me, thank you!
