Since I have been posting on reflections lately I thought that Good Friday would certainly be a great day to take time to reflect!
I have Kirk Cameron’s feed on my FB wall and well, I Love many of the posts that get sent to his blog. It is a brilliant way to market as long as you know the content will align with what you are trying to convey….ANYWAY –
I saw a post today that said – You Killed the Author of Life!
You can find it here – http://kirkcameron.com/2013/03/you-killed-the-author-of-life/
I clicked through and read the post but my mind kept creeping back to that day in the movie theater that I watched “The Passion of the Christ”!
I make it a tradition to watch it every year at Easter time so that I may always remember that He died MY DEATH! He took my place!
I recall being in the theater and looking away many times not be able to watch my God take MY SIN! I remember that time in that space that I felt compelled to SCREAM OUT – STOP! STOP IT! DON’T YOU KNOW WHO HE IS??????????????? Many times I had to remind myself to breath as I was holding my breath in hopes that the outcome would be different….that the story would some how change! Knowing full well that it would not….
I remember very clearly leaving the theater and observing those around me…..hearing grumbles of – the Jews Killed him, the …..(insert whatever you can think of here)….are at fault. Pilot …..blah, blah, blah…..it felt very much like what I image leaving the scene of a murder must feel like…..and a funeral….and I was fully aware that I took part in it!
I remember very clearly feeling My OWN Convictions, as all I was feeling was….
I DID it! MY SINS are at fault.
I felt no hate for other people ….no other humans…. just for my own sin. I felt as though I needed to go take a hard look in the mirror to allow myself to “REFLECT” on what I just witnessed.
Of course – my color for Good Friday is Red! Red for the blood that was shed on my behalf!
I Praise God for the Death and the Resurrection!!!
Until next time – I wish for you Success!
