A day of sadness and gratitude

On this Good Friday morning as I do my devotion, I am reminded of Jesus’ suffering over 2,000 years ago.  Today I know it is important for me to observe and appreciate the events of “Holy Week” every day.  I need to die to myself and live with my resurrected Lord.  Jesus’ death and resurrection tells me I can let go of the past and live for Him today.  On this day he freed me from the shame and guilt brought on by my sinful behavior of my flesh.  I am so grateful for my Lord.  

Although this day saddens me I live in anticpation of the glory that the third day brings.  Jesus is my sacrificial lamb and Jesus is my King.  Thank you Jesus for being everything I need.
