Today, we recognize a day titled “Good Friday”. It’s a day to pause and remember the physical, emotional, and spiritual abuse that Jesus encountered, on his way to his “Good Friday” execution on the cross, nearly 2000 years ago.
Jesus wasn’t killed. Jesus allowed himself to be sacrificed by the powers of the world, as a personal gift to you and me… and for ALL people through all ages. It was a sacrificial gift from Jesus, that each of us are free to CHOOSE to accept, or to reject.
What is the choice that Jesus is offering us?
