Baptism Good Friday
John 19:30 “When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. I slept really well last night for the first time in a while. I had an open schedule this morning where I was really looking forward to some chunky quiet time with God. But for some reason, I just found it difficult to get into that secret place. I know God is bigger than your circumstances, but I found myself wondering “maybe it’s because I’m alone in quarantine… maybe it’s the less-than-luxurious hotel… maybe it’s the lack of exercise in tight quarters?” But then I dialed into our church’s baptism service this afternoon and the presence of God just fell. Testimony after testimony just billowed out of my computer screen into my little hotel room. Restoration of broken relationships, supernatural healing of depression and disease, expressions of the father’s love through kingdom community… I found myself pumping my fist and exclaiming amen with a tear flying on more than one occasion. God you are so good. Your death on the cross wasn’t just some isolated event two thousand and twenty years ago. The power of your death and resurrection still lives on today, and I am so blessed to be a witness of the works you continue doing. I love you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
