It’s Good Friday

6 Apr

Have you ever been working out and only had to last FOUR MORE MINUTES, yet it felt like eternity? That’s me on most workouts! I was reading the Easter story this week and realized I’d never considered how long Christ hung suffering on that cross for us. Answer: 6 hours.

I wonder how many times Jesus had to remind himself, hanging there, that the pain He was experiencing was only temporary, that He only had to last a little bit longer, that the end result was worth it all…

How thankful I am that Jesus chose to bear our shame, pain, sickness, and sin so we wouldn’t have to one day. May this Good Friday be a special day of gratitude as we reflect on what an amazing thing Christ did for us. And how very much He loves us.

Happy Easter with love,

Lisa & Barbara
