Good Friday


April 14, 2006 by Isaac Hovet

They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him. They made a crown of long, sharp thorns and put it on his head, and they placed a stick in his right hand as a scepter. Then they knelt before him in mockery, yelling, “Hail! King of the Jews!” And they spit on him and grabbed the stick and beat him on the head with it. When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified.

Matthew 27:28-31

But then God our Savior showed us his kindness and love. He saved us, not because of the good things we did, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins and gave us a new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us because of what Jesus Christ our Savior did. He declared us not guilty because of his great kindness. And now we know that we will inherit eternal life. These things I have told you are all true. I want you to insist on them so that everyone who trusts in God will be careful to do good deeds all the time. These things are good and beneficial for everyone.

Titus 3:4-8

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Savior. King of Kings. Wonderful master. Glorious Lord. Beautiful. Lovely. Gracious servant of all. On this day, I remember you. I remember your death. I remember your suffering. I remember the steps that you chose to take on my behalf. On our behalf. On the behalf of the Father who so desparately wanted to be reconciled to us. Thank you for your obedience, even unto death, torture and shame.

I love my savior. I love Jesus. With my whole heart. I want to serve him always. In sacred moments like Good Friday I am reminded of the reason to exist, to work or to go on.

Thank you for the cross. Thank you for the cross.

    My name is Taylor Lindsay. I am a student at Blenheim District High School. In my 12 Art class, my teacher, Mr. Cameron, has given the class an assignment to do a research component on your favourite artist. To be honest I don’t really have a favourite, but I really like the sketching of Jesus. I was wondering if you could tell me the name fo the artist? Thank you for your time.
    God Bless
