Good Friday

Also known as "Black Friday"... what an odd pairing. At least on the surface.

The Black part of this equation comes from the death of Christ on the cross. Could there be anything more terrible than to see God, who became a man, die on a cross among thieves? There are many who do not believe how pure and sinless He actually was. How much of a travesty that it was that He went to that cross, and never even tried to save Himself. And yet this day is also known as "Good Friday".

What makes this day good is what Christ accomplished on that cross. On that cross He paid the penalty for every sin I have ever done, what ever sins have committed this day, and every sin I will commit until the day I die.

There is so much in there that I could spend every waking moment from now until my last breath reflecting on it all. There are times when I am just overwhelmed with awe and amazement.
Verse for today:
Psalm 102 : 12-17, ESV
But you, O Lord, are enthroned forever;
you are remembered throughout all generations.
You will arise and have pity on Zion;
it is the time to favor her;
the appointed time has come.
For your servants hold her stones dear
and have pity on her dust.
Nations will fear the name of the Lord,
and all the kings of the earth will fear your glory.
For the Lord builds up Zion;
he appears in his glory;
he regards the prayer of the destitute
and does not despise their prayer.
