Good Friday

This is the day we set aside to remember the suffering of Jesus for our sins. I have spent the morning studying the gospels and reflecting on just what Jesus went through because of His love for the world. He was willing to undergoe extreme pain for the sins of the world. Did you know that we get the word “excruciating” from the Latin word meaning, “Out of the cross?” There is an article published in 1986 by the Journal of the American Medical Association called On the Physical Death of Jesus Christ that details the medical aspects that Jesus endured for us. I’ve read it before, but it has special meaning today. Take some time to remember the cross of Jesus.
