Good Friday

Today is Good Friday.  It's the day we can especially reflect on Christ's death 2000+ years ago.  He was tortured, beaten, humiliated, and murdered on the cross.  And he did that to take on my and your sins.  God sent him because He loves us so much.  More than words can ever even describe.  We taught Caleb to hold his arms out to his side when we say, "How much do we love _______ (mommy/daddy/Jesus/etc.)?"  But the reality is that Jesus loves us so much more than our arms can reach - even more than we can understand in our minds.  What is good about Good Friday?  The best part is that three days later, Jesus conquered death and rose from the grave.  We have hope!  What a thing to celebrate!!  I'm so thankful for this time of year for us to celebrate that Jesus is Risen and death is conquered and we are saved! 

As you go about this weekend, especially today, remember the sacrifice God sent to save us and I pray that your hearts will be touched to know the true power and meaning of Easter.  It's all about Him.  May He receive all the praise and honor and glory.
