Good Friday


On this Good Friday, may we pause and remember Jesus’ great sacrifice on the cross. He gave it all for you and for me.


Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”

Matthew 20:17-19 – NIV

The List

Plain white paper.

Dark black ink.

The list.

A very long list.



Forsaken vows.

My sin.

Simply written.

Just lying there.

Flapping in the breeze.

Heart pounding.

Oh, let no one see.

The List.


My shame.

My sorrow.

My regret.

All on the list.

The plain white paper.

Now laid upon the wood.

A weathered hand.

Palm up.

Fingers outstretched.

Hiding the list.

Brace for impact.

Hammer meets nail.

Pierced flesh.

Blood flows.

Over the list.

Nailed to the cross.

Washed by His blood.

The list is no more.

All is forgiven.

No more lists.

I am forgiven.

So are you.

-APS 4/9/17


O Lord God Almighty, thank You for Jesus. Thank You for His sacrifice on the cross, Your gift to set us free once and for all. No more lists. We are forgiven. We are saved. All hail the power of Jesus’ Name!

In the Holy Name of Jesus. We give thanks and praise,
