“I AM the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
This trinity of names illustrates well the message of the Cross.
There is one Way to God: Jesus the Messiah.
There is one Truth: Jesus the Messiah.
There is one Life Source, one Creator, one pre-incarnate I AM: Jesus the Messiah.
Today, Good Friday, is a day to remember and reflect on what Jesus endured for you. Go to a church service. Reread the story of the crucifixion in the Gospels. Allow yourself to feel the anguish and abandonment Jesus felt alone on the cross. Read Isaiah 53, which is a prophetic description of those hours.
It is important to go near His death, to imagine His every feeling as a fully human yet completely sinless man. Going near grows our gratitude for His sacrifice and prepares our hearts to worship and celebrate with abandon on Easter Sunday.
Go near Him.
Gaze on His sacrificial body, given for you.
