    Good Friday always brings tears to my eyes. I have no words for the beauty and pain of it.

    Thank you Jesus.

    Glorious. I went and sat by the ‘quiet waters’ of the south China sea, to reflect on the passion. This speaks to me, the penitent thief, now St Dysmas.

    “Now one of the criminals hanging there reviled Jesus, saying, “Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us”. And Dysmas said, “Have you no fear of God, for you are subject to the same condemnation? And indeed, we have been condemned justly, for the sentence we received corresponds to our crimes, but this man has done nothing criminal.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” He replied to him, “Amen I say to you today you will be with me in Paradise.”

    Keep the faith.

    This is gorgeous. Thank you.
    Thank you for the other posts, Menagerie (and for turning off the comments). These posts are one of the things that drew me here. Your posts reminds us why we are here at all.
    Thank you again.

    Thank you Menagerie!

    Just watched the moon set behind the desert mountains. Made me think deeply on Jesus and the sacrifice he gave us this day.

    There is no greater love than that of a friend who lays down his life for us.

    “If I was there”…………….I don’t know. I would hope I would be with Jesus, his suffering and the true believers. I would hope I would not turn away, or rebuked him or importantly God. It would be easy to find a reason to abandon him.

    “When it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. At three o’clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

    Was I there when they crucified my Lord? When they nailed him to the cross? Yes I was/am. Every day of my 76+ years of life they keep pounding those nails. I have tears in my eyes, tears of joy, wonder & hope.

    Tears of sadness too, for those who do not try, or will not try, to understand.

    It took me years to realize it, but YES, I was there!!! I was hanging on the cross with Him (Galatians 2:20). And then I died with Him and was buried with Him and, oh glorious day, I was raised with Him (first part of Romans 6 and Ephesians 2). And I am now seated in the heavenly realm right beside my beloved Heavenly Father (Ephesians 2)!

    THIS is what the bread represents in the Lord’s Supper. This is what baptism is about. This is why I am a new creation in Christ Jesus–old things have passed away (DIED) and, behold, all things have become new! I AM NEW–no longer just “an ol’ sinner saved by grace,” but a SAINT who is just as righteous and holy as Jesus Christ is because of what He did in me and to me!

    Of course, this doesn’t mean I never sin; it means that when I DO sin, I’m acting contrary to my new nature. I’m acting like someone I’m not–Now I am no longer a dirty rotten sinner, but a saint who sometimes sins.

    Thank you, Jesus, for taking me with you to the cross and for carrying me through death and burial to resurrection. Oh, what a wonderful Savior!

    So VERY Awesome Menagerie
    Reminded me of this song that I was so fortunate to hear the artist sing in person a decade ago
    Still a hard listen for me because it says so much to me.

    A Capella gives me chills. My dad was a Primitive Baptist and they do not have musical instruments in church. All hymns are A Capella and sung in parts.
