Reflection for Good Friday

What is the significance of Good Friday to you?
A beginning to a three-day weekend?
Maybe the start of spring break?
One last chance to buy Easter eggs for Sunday?
Or is it something more?
Is it a day to remember that long ago the combined evils of millennia bore down on the shoulders of one Man?
Does it make you evaluate where you are and where you are going?
How dark is your darkness and do you dare to bring it to Light?
Nearly 2,000 years have passed since that dark day just outside the gates of Jerusalem.
The message of Jesus calls us not only to reflect on His suffering but for us to live out His sacrifice.
We are to crucify ourselves each day to be resurrected in His likeness.
The reason this day is important is because it marks the ultimate expression of God's love for mankind.
For the disciples, hope died on Friday...
...but Sunday is coming.
