A Good Friday Reflection

There are many aspects of Jesus' suffering and death on the cross that our hearts can meditate on today, given that it is Good Friday.

But today, I would would like to give you just one, very special thought I had recently on Jesus' walk to Calvary while carrying that heavy, burdensome cross.

Realize that, even before we were born, Jesus had to accept death for our sins in the FAITH and HOPE that we would love Him back once we were born. 

He had to demonstrate this faith with no certainty of our return love

At least our faith is easier.  We are called to have faith in Him with the certainty that He WILL love us back.

May your Good Friday be filled with reflection in prepartion for a blessed Easter!
