Perspective: Good Friday
Can you imagine being a disciple that Friday? In spite of all the allusions to death you had not understood what Jesus meant. Now He was on a cross, suffering in anguish at the hands of those who prized politics and power. After years of fruitfulness, wisdom, and authoritative teaching you watch Him die and wonder why it is ending this way.
What is it like to be a disciple this Friday? The fresh realization that Jesus, the one who would save his people from their sins, experienced humiliating death and in so doing the Creator offered Himself as Saviour and Lord.
It is all in the perspective.
