Happy Good Friday! This is the weirdest Easter of my life, so today I have for you a strange sort of Easter story that doesn’t seem very Easter-ish at first – but it gets there, trust me!
I wrote this after it struck me the other day how gross but how powerful it would have been to live in a sacrificial system like the Israelites did. You might not want to read this story if you’re squeamish. : I mean, the sheer amount of blood and death would be appalling, yet even more so, the fact that God chose to dwell among you despite the sin that caused all that.
Viewing the ultimate sacrifice through the eyes of a person used to countless sacrifices really gave me a new perspective on love’s most astounding triumph of all time. I hope it does for you too.
