Good Friday

Silence.

What do you say???

Silence.

Who are you???

Silence.

Don’t you understand that I have the power to execute you???

The only power you have is that which has been given to you.

Liars lie. They swear and lie. “Crucify him! Release Barabbas!”

“What crime has he committed? What has he done?”

The politician succumbs and does what politicians so often do. He sacrifices values and morals to give the loudest what they demand. Pilate handed them Jesus.

Soldiers. Purple robe. Mocking insults. Tearing flesh. Blood and pain.

Stumbling. Weak. “You there! You come carry his cross!” they said to Simon.

Golgotha. Lifted high on rough lumber. Gambling for His clothes. Vinegar on a sponge. Laughs.

“Forgive them Father. They don’t realize what they are doing.” He prays for his enemies even while hanging on the cross.

“Lord, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.”

“Today you shall be with me in paradise.”

It is finished!

I am reborn, spotless, a new creation …
