Κύριε Ἰησοῦ Χριστέ, Υἱέ τοῦ Θεοῦ, ἐλέησόν με τὸν ἁμαρτωλόν
Translated: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner”
On this most holy day, the day when our Messiah humbled himself and died for all of us, I pray the Jesus Prayer. On this “Good Friday”.
I thankful that Jesus died for me. I am thankful that God loved me so much He sent His only Son to die for me. I am thankful that God did not want to condemn us but wanted to save us. And save us He did.
I am thankful that Jesus was raised again to life, having defeated death. Life in an incorruptible body. Life now seated next God and given all authority.
