Have just returned from a special Tenebrae service at church. It was wonderful to be in the midst of other believers and reflect on Christ's work on the cross. No matter how many times I've read about or listened to others speak on the events surrounding the crucifixion, I am astonished and moved by His incomparable sacrifice and the Love it required.
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. -Romans 5:8
Indeed, that is good news.
