Good Friday


After spending this week whining and doing nothing after my surgery I want to spend today doing something more important. I want to think about what Good Friday is about. About how Jesus spent his last human day. How awful it was, and how much pain and disgrace he felt to save Us.
Yes Us.
You, me and everyone else.
He was up on that cross thinking of each and every one of us. If you were in an accident and someone rescued you, you would spend the rest of your life being thankful to that person, right? But so many people dont feel the same about Jesus, when they should. If it wasnt for his self-sacrifice we would all face a long painful eternity in Hell. But now we dont have to. We can choose to love and follow Him and live for eternity with Him in Heaven. Which is WAY better than saving us from an accident here on earth.
Heavenly Father, Thank you for sacrificing yourself for us. We fall so short of deserving such an awesome gift. Help us all to do a better job of living to glorify you. In Jesus Name...Amen

Being LDS, we don't really have Good Friday as a holiday, but I've always appreciated the day and reflected on the meaning. Thanks for sharing this.
