Good Friday

Good Friday 2018. I wrote in my prayer diary this morning. “How can the Creator of the Universe do so much for those so little?” This is a question that the secular world cannot grasp or answer, because of denial. Denial of God, denial of our origins, denial of the amazing love and presence of a God Who loves us, without limit. There is no end to God’s love and commitment for us. There is nothing we can do to stop it. We can’t deny it is there. All we can do is accept it, secure in the knowledge that He is always there for us. And how can we respond? The only way is through acceptance of the fact of the Cross at Calvary – where Jesus died so that we can live. Forever. And leave our sins, our struggles, our worries, our fears, our confusions, our sicknesses, right there in His presence. To die on that Cross with Him. And we know how it ends up – Sunday’s coming!

My Bible reading this morning took me to 1 Corinthians 1:18, “The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction.” But it’s not foolish to me. The message of the Cross gives me a hope and a future. So this morning, I am sitting here with a grateful heart. Still wondering, “How can the Creator of the Universe do so much for those so little?” But accepting its reality. Perhaps you can too.
