Ultimate Giving~

Tonight, all over the world, believers of Jesus Christ are remembering what the sacrifice
He gave for us all. It is 'Good Friday' or some call it 'The Day of Darkness'. At our church, it's called the service of darkness. It is the time we reflect when Jesus was crucified on the cross.
He gave a tortured, bleeding, humble that we may have eternal hope. A hope for something much better than what we have here on Earth. A hope to carry with us as we do travel on our journey while here.
A hope that love will prevail forevermore.

John 19
1-3 So Pilate took Jesus and had him whipped. The soldiers, having braided a crown from thorns, set it on his head, threw a purple robe over him, and approached him with, "Hail, King of the Jews!" Then they greeted him with slaps in the face.
They took Jesus away. Carrying his cross, Jesus went out to the place called Skull Hill (the name in Hebrew is Golgotha), where they crucified him, and with him two others, one on each side, Jesus in the middle. Pilate wrote a sign and had it placed on the cross. It read:

jesus the nazarene
the king of the jews.

28Jesus, seeing that everything had been completed so that the Scripture record might also be complete, then said, "I'm thirsty."

29-30A jug of sour wine was standing by. Someone put a sponge soaked with the wine on a javelin and lifted it to his mouth. After he took the wine, Jesus said, "It's done . . . complete." Bowing his head, he offered up his spirit.

Father, thank you for giving for us all....
