As we approach Good Friday it always strikes me why we use the word good to describe something as awful as the scene of an execution, accompanies by a prior flogging and beating in public! It was however very good indeed, that the richest and most powerful God man in all of history, God himself became man and died to be our substitute to receive abuse on our behalf, to suffer the humiliation of the Cross so that we could receive all his riches is the greatest love story ever told. Good Friday is GOOD indeed.
There are many who don’t know it and have not even had the chance to reject it that alone hear it! God says to us in the beginning of time that we are made in his image, that we each have value because he is the determination of worth and he bestowed on us a price tag of his own Son, that is worth he sees in each human regardless of belief.
So, to hear of many in places in India who are treated as not even second class but as the lowest of the low, as dogs in a slum is truly unjust and unfathomable.
What is beautiful is we can do something about the injustice of children who grow up without parents, forced into child labour or prositiution. We can do something, we can support them and pay for them to be educated, fed and taught the greatest news of all history. That’s why I want to encourage you to watch this video that could just change the course of someone’s eternity let alone life now on earth. We can do something, be a part of that change. Don’t give up hope, in fact create hope
