Good Friday …
The day that Jesus was nailed to a tree, a cross, crucified willingly for me.
It was the day that “religion” much like Rome’s tyranny was, got suffocated and lost its breath. What tried to cause behavior modification got replaced with relationship. We received grace to empower the freedom we gained through His sacrifice.
“I was there just recently, I had prayed and contended for the life of a loved one for so long that I was sure that when God moved it was going to look a certain way. To my surprise that’s not what happened, what happened was much messier than I had pictured, but so much more beautiful. Not at all what I had expected, because my expectations can’t match the presence of Jesus in a situation.”
