I awoke this morning with thanksgiving on my lips for all Jesus Christ has done for me. Today is Good Friday. It's on this day, we recognize His brutal torture and agonizing death on the cross. Being put to death on a cross was so inhumane that Roman citizens were exempt from the cross as a death sentence. But, there He willingly hung.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for being wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities, that You took chastisement for my peace, and that by the very stripes of ripped flesh on Your Body, I am healed. (Isaiah 53)
