My thoughts on a Good Friday

It frustrates me when I learn that I still need to work on a Good Friday. I'm sure many of you here know that Holy Week in the Philippines is such a big deal that even business establishments observed at least Good Friday. But here in the U.S. Holy Week seems to be like just ordinary days. However, in our own little ways, we tried to ponder the significance of this week. We wanted to prepare our hearts and minds for Good Friday so we watched The Passion of the Christ last night. I've seen the movie a couple of times before, nevertheless, it had not lessen the impact the movie has on me. It had always made me feel weak, tearful and repentant. The movie may not be 100% accurate to what really had happened to Jesus, but most part of the movie are based on what's written in the Bible. The very graphic interpretation of Jesus' last 12 hours on Earth had left me pensive. Jesus went through humiliation and physical suffering before His Death because He chose to lay down His Life for us. As a sinner, I don't feel worthy. But I stand in Awe of His Greatness. Thank you, my Lord, my God for saving a sinner like me.

Happy Easter to you and Jeff, ate Jhen. I have seen this movie before and it sure was sad. That's how great God's love is.
