Good Friday

So just about everybody knows what today is. People who follow Jesus, people who don’t, people who think they do but don’t, people who just aren’t sure.

It’s the day we celebrate a great story. The story of God loving us so much that he was willing to do something impossible to believe to restore our friendship. The story that eventually continues on Easter with an even more unexpected resurrection.

We believe it. Or do we? What would it look like to live like it really happened, like it meant we got to live differently? What would it mean to other people if we lived like there really was a Resurrection, really was a Crucifixion and it wasn’t just a legend that we mark with a special day.

It really happened.

It changed everything.

It changed us.

It saved us.

    I am not sure we can completely understand it, ever. It changed us. Such that we are forever children of salvation, children of resurrection. As a prof of mine said there is Easter in every service, and I’d say that there is Easter in our entire lives, now. Because Jesus’ death changed us.

    That does not mean that we should not try to understand more deeply, indeed it means we should try even more to understand, because the more we can understand what happened, and where we were, the more we can appreciate what we have always had.
