I should be sleeping.
But I’m not.
If you, too, are not sleeping, send me a message, if you want.
It’s a little frustrating to me when Christians paint good Friday as the low point in the gospel. People say things like, “On Friday he died, but Sunday is coming!” as if Friday was a brief awkward, uncomfortable moment and we want to get to the resurrection as soon as possible.
No. There’s no reason to rush past Friday and rush past the cross because that’s the point. The crucifixion, the cross, the suffering— that is what victory looks like. That’s what love looks like. That was not a loss, that was a triumph.
