Do you know that not every good thought is a happy thought? Sometimes incredibly noble and powerful thoughts do not make you smile – but they are still GOOD. A perfect example is Mark 15:1-32. These words bring thoughts and pictures of the pain, humiliation and suffering that Jesus experienced in obtaining our eternal salvation.
No, Mark’s words never make me smile…instead they bring tears…but that’s not all! They also bring gratitude, peace, comfort and an assurance of being greatly loved. As you read Mark 15 pause every few verses and repeat “Yes, this was for me!” and receive His salvation afresh, His forgiveness anew and His unparalleled love in a radically transforming way this Holy Week.
And join us TONIGHT at “Journey to the Cross” and walk again Christ’s journey remembering…“It was for me!” (5-8pm)
