“Great” Friday

“And they will mock him and spit on him, and flog him and kill him. And after three days he will rise.”

Mark 10:34 –

Kabra Lynn

There came a  day…

one day…

thousands of years ago. 

A day that the world waited patiently for,

for thousands of years prior. 

THE DAY that freed us all.

THE DAY that opened gates, 

broke chains, 

reconciled, 

redeemed, 

restored,  

and remade reality. 

REBIRTH.

Weak legs carried the worlds weight.

Soft skin split by hard whips. 

Gentle spirit taunted.

Beaten, bruised, abused. 

Metal spikes pierced cold flesh. 

Lungs collapsed with blood.

The sweat of sin dripped down kind eyes. 

And we call this GOOD. 

Good Friday.

I call this GRACE.

GIVING.

MORE THAN GOOD.

This day love died…

only to patiently await its return…

three. days. later. 

I CALL THIS GREAT.

Great Friday.
