Good Friday

Psalm 31:6
Into your hands I commend my spirit; you will redeem me, Lord, faithful God.

Jesus showed us the face of God throughout His ministry…all the way to the end. He responded even to His persecutors and killers with love, mercy and forgiveness. He hung on the cross for you and me to show us the way to redemption, new life and wholeness. We must go through the struggle. We must learn to sit in the pain. It sounds so counter-intuitive…but I have found it to be true. Jesus shows us that it’s the way to new life. A “birthing” is underway. To borrow a line from author Brene Brown, your religion should be a midwife not an epidural. No matter what suffering or injustice you are going through…Jesus is hanging there with you and showing you that this is not the end. A new beginning is underway. Cling to Him…for resurrection is coming!

Suggested song of the day– “Salvation” on the Live to Love album.
