Good Friday

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. -- I John 3:1 (KJV)
On this Good Friday one of my favorite hymns is O Sacred Head, Now Wounded.  On this day we consider the reality of the crucified Christ.  Spend time today at the foot of the cross and ponder what he did for you.

"O sacred Head, now wounded,
with grief and shame weighed down,
now scornfully surrounded with thorns, thine only crown;
how pale thou art with anguish, with sore abuse and scorn!
How does that visage languish which once was bright as morn!"
