What Will You Do Today?

It’s been a while I know, but today I thought would be a good day to spend some time writing. Of course, my thoughts and mind wandered to the cross and the impact it has had on the world.


This day is called Good Friday. But if you know biblical history, you know that horrible things happened on this day. Jesus was put arrested and put on trial. Jesus was flogged, mocked and beaten. Jesus was hung on a cross between two thieves. Jesus was separated from His Father. Jesus died. The earth cried out in anguish through darkness and earthquakes. And yet, we call this day good.


I’m sure there are theological reasons for this, but for me, this day is good because the One who was able to remove the stain of my sin willingly gave up His life for mine. That is what makes this day good.


I pray that as you go through your day that you will take some time to remember, worship and praise Jesus for the sacrifice He made for you. Perhaps a song will help with this time of remembrance. Here are the lyrics to the hymn “Hallelujah! What a Savior” and a link to listen to a version of this song.


“Man of Sorrows!” what a name

For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!


Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!


Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
“Full atonement!” can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!


Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in Heav’n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!


When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

And yet another beautiful piece depicting the suffering of Jesus can be found by clicking here.


After spending some time with these two songs and Scripture, I cannot help but offer my life to Jesus. He gave His all…I am compelled to likewise.


Today my prayer is that He will find me to be a faithful servant in all that I say and do. I pray that He will be honored and glorified by my words and my actions.


What is your prayer today? What will you do today?


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
