Good Friday

God loved me and gave Himself for me:

[5] Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,
[6] who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
[7] but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
[8] And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.
[9] Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name,
[10] that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
[11] and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Today we enter into the mystery of the Cross. The worst evil imaginable became the greatest good the world has ever known—that is why today, the day that the Lord died on a Cross, is called Good Friday.

It truly strikes me to read the words of Isaiah 52-53 which prophesied it all.
