We have now completed the #ORANGE21 remembrance movement. Twenty-one days of praying for the families of each Egyptian martyred in Libya is motivation to love more deeply and live more fully. Every day is a gift from God and is called ‘the present.’
Why, then, is there an #ORANGE21 post on day twenty-two?
For twenty-one days I have honored men who have died for their Christian faith. Today, Good Friday, I honor the Man, Jesus, who died, not for his faith, but for mine.
Jesus isn’t a martyr, He is the Sacrifice, the only sacrifice that could meet the requirements for my redemption. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
There is no distance His sacrifice can’t reach, no depth it can’t plum, no height beyond it’s reach, and no one beyond His embrace.
Come to the Lamb.
