April 18, 2014 - Good Friday
The notion that God would become man is strange. Then the fact that this God-man would suffer at the hands of corrupt men and women, and die a despicable death, on a Roman instrument of torture, is not only strange, but nearly unbelievable. For one to believe that that man, in that place, at that time, in that way brought salvation to all of mankind, for all of time: that claim is Christianity. Good Friday is about entering into Jesus death so that tomorrow we can enter into His glory. Today pray the Stations of the Cross, and ask for the grace to believe that Christ did this for you.
