This week we prepare our to remember Jesus’ suffering and death for our sake on Good Friday. It is a somber day, one in which we reflect on our own sinfulness and our great need for redemption. It is a day in which we remember the mocking, scourging, taunting and torture that Jesus bore on our behalf. And yet, we can rejoice with quiet gratitude for the great love poured out upon us.
