Nothing in fiction can touch the sheer drama of this non-fiction, historical account. There is no tragedy more poignant than the Bible’s account of Jesus’ brutal beating and violent death on Good Friday. There is no triumph is more spine-tingling and world-changing than the Easter sunrise news of Jesus’ resurrection.
Don’t treat Good Friday services or Easter Celebrations as a spiritual version of a TV rerun. Don’t let familiarity breed neglect. Take some time this weekend to stop and survey the wondrous cross. Let this most compelling message capture your heart again.
