It’s Friday, Good Friday by name although, as the school children at the Easter Experience commented it’s pretty much Bad Friday because Jesus died.
He was spat on beaten and humiliated.
This fit healthy 33 year old man did not have the strength to carry the cross to the hill,
someone stepped in for him.
He took all this then died the most agonising death possible for us.
That’s why it’s Good Friday, because he did it for us and Sunday is coming.
He did it so we don’t need to be bowed under the weight of life,
So we can stand tall,
knowing we are loved and
Free to be our special unique selves.
He did it because he is the only truly Good man,
that God Man,
who chose to go through all that for us.
You are worth it,
God says so.
