Good Friday

"Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."  John 1:29b

Before the Third Cross

Before the third cross, there
were tears that stained the
ground...drops of sweat as
blood falling...the harsh, cutting
lashes of a Roman whip. 
Before the third cross there 
was a plea for release, yet a yielding
to what must be.

Before the third cross He knew 
my name.

Before the third cross He knew 
yours too.

He carried it anyway.
