Today, I reflected on how Jesus would have wanted today to go, all those years ago.
No sacrificial lamb goes to the altar willingly, but just before the sacrifice, it submits.
The story of events just before Jesus’ arrest was one of struggle with the impending crucifixion.
The story of events after his arrest was one of total submission to what was necessary.
Your struggle before a sacrifice does not compromise the integrity of your intent. It makes you human.
It is what you do when you arrive at the altar that is indicative of character.
“Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”
I am thankful for the example of sacrifice. The ultimate example of love. It is a day of mourning, yet it is a Good Friday.
