The Usual But Meaningful

It's Good Friday. A day of fast and abstinence. I'm trying hard to focus on the Lord's Passion and not my growling stomach. On Friday's I usually post a poem that I find meaningful but lately I haven't found anything that meaningful AND in the public domain. Except for my usual Good Friday verse from the book of Hebrews in the New Testament. With an unknown author and an estimated composition date of 63 AD, I think I'm safe from copyright laws. Have a wonderful Easter!


Keep your eyes on Jesus,
our leader and instructor.
He was willing to die a shameful death on the cross
because of the joy he knew would be his afterwards;
and now he sits in the place of honor
by the throne of God.
If you want to keep
from becoming fainthearted and weary,
think about his patience
as sinful men did such terrible things to him.

After all,
you have never yet struggled against sin and temptation
until you sweat
great
drops
of
blood.

--Hebrews 12:2-4

  2. Not 'usual', traditional sounds better. Just like your traditional Christmas post from the book of Luke.
