Before I knew the true JESUS I felt so disconnected and numb to the event that we celebrate today. I think subconsciously it was an attempt to ignore looking upon the tragedy that my sin had caused. Guilt can often be a great deterrent for truth. As if ignoring it somehow could suppress the gory reality of it all.
Now on this day I feel compelled to focus intensely & intently upon the sacrifice that saved me. In worship I stand eye to eye with JESUS as he lovingly endures the punishment meant for me, sharing the understanding that this was the only way. Truly no one has ever shown their commitment to relationship with another as extremely as HE did.
Out of words to say so I'll let Young Noah paint the picture.
