Good Friday

And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him. . .

Luke 23:33

One of the sad ironies of human nature is that it often has a way of rejecting the best and accepting the worst. Why did the crowd ask for the release of Barabbas and the crucifixion of Jesus? The answer is in the biblical statement, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9). Jesus is just as divine today and just as much alive as He was on that first Good Friday. Yet, millions today do not accept Him. His goodness is still a rebuke to our badness; His purity still shows up our impurities; His sinlessness still reveals our sinfulness; and unless we allow Him to destroy the evil within us, the evil within us still wants to destroy Him. This is the conflict of the ages.

Bible Reading

Luke 23:32-43.


Lord Jesus, when I reflect upon the agony of Your death at Calvary, my heart is once again humbled at the magnitude of Your love for me and all mankind. Amen.
