As we approach the end of Holy Week and the celebration of Easter, pause to remember what this day, Good Friday, means.
Today is the day that we remember the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.
His separation from the Father.
His unfathomable love for us, sinners.
We remember that we were the ones in the crowd, crying, "Crucify Him!"
It was our sin that nailed Him to the cross. Our sin. Our cross.
He took our place, paid the price for us. He died so that we may live.
Those were my nails
That was my crown
That pierced Your hands and Your brow
Those were my thorns
Those were my scorns
Those were my tears that fell down
And just as You said it would be
You did it all for me
After You counted the cost
You took my shame, my blame
On my cross
