Would you be in the crowd yelling, crucify Him? On this day we reflect the torture’s Jesus went through for you and me. I would like to think that I wouldn’t have been in that crowd yelling, “crucify Him.” But I have to say, my track of following others for the wrong reason in my life has happened. But if He wasn’t crucified how could He have saved us? Many thoughts and mysteries on this day. Let’s remember what Jesus said before He entered and opened up the Heavenly Kingdom.

“Father Forgive Them, They know not what they do.” (Luke 23:24)

Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43)

When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son.” (John 19:26)


“My God my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34)

“I thirst” (John 19:28)

“It is finished” (John 19:30)

Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last. (Luke 23:46)

The prophecy is fulfilled. About 3pm the veil tore from top to the bottom. Some rocks rolled away from the graves and people rose. So much to process and to focus on, He died for us to take away all sin.

Let us pray, Dear Heavenly Father, help me to live a life that is worthy to say thank you for giving the sacrifice of your Son. Help me to accept my cross I must carry, to learn to love and grow in faith. Give me grace to do your will each and everyday. Help me to share your word by loving actions and not just by words. Lord Jesus we love you and praise you not only today but everyday. Amen!
