Good Friday re-post

I started this blog 5 years ago right before Good Friday. I like what I wrote then, so I'm re-posting it, my 2nd post of the Umblog.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

This is the Good News! This is why this terrible death is celebrated as Good.

These are things worth thinking on today, the last words of Jesus on Good Friday.

"Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34) -compassion
"Amen I say to thee, this day you will be with me in paradise." (Luke 23:43) -hope
"Woman, behold your son...Behold your mother." (John 19:26-27) -family
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (Matt. 27:46) -spiritual suffering
"I thirst." (John 19:28) -physical suffering
"It is finished." (John 19:30) -victory
"Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." (Luke 23:46) -faith
