Here’s a link to a really good post on Good Friday. You can read this to remember the weight of what we celebrate today. It also helps me to read things like this so I can better explain them to my kids.
Jason sent me this video yesterday, and because of it’s length I put off watching it until just this morning. I watched it twice, once by myself, and once with the kids, and cried both times. I cried simply because of the clarity of the story–of Christ’s perfect sacrifice for man’s sin. Then again out of joy for our future inheritance.
We sang the song, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” in church on Sunday, and when it came on the radio again last night, Clare asked me what the song means. This is a perfect explanation of the Christmas story…from the beginning.
Yes, the video is just over 12 minutes long, but I promise you it is worth every second! If you watch it, let me know what you think!
