It has rained twice this morning. It has let up now, but I can't help but think it a fitting start to this Good Friday. As important as Easter Sunday is, it wouldn't be possible without Good Friday. So thankful am I for my salvation and the sacrifice that made it possible!
1 Peter 2:24
Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
The cross was two pieces of dead wood; and a helpless, unresisting Man was nailed to it; yet it was mightier than the world, and triumphed, and will ever triumph over it.
-Augustus William Hare
Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf in springtime.
