good friday makes me a little uncomfortable. and the saturday afterwards too. i really dont feel like celebrating until the 3rd day, when i picture jesus doing a victory dance outside the empty tomb, fist pumping and talking smack to satan, "you can't have her. she's mine now! i have ransomed her!" he was talking about me! today i am thinking about how much that ransom cost. it's heavy.
these two songs always bring me to my knees when i think about him on the cross, held there by my sin, bearing it willingly for my redemption. halle-freaking-lujah!
i don't dig the dated powerpoint backgrounds in these vids though.
jim lepage is an artist jesse found who is doing a a series of designs based on each book of the bible plus some of its major events. he is amazing. we are going to wait until he finishes the series and buy some of our favorite. they're so much better than the typical jesus art of a hot aryan white guy in jedi robes petting lambs.
this is one he did for the crucifixion of jesus. i am in love with it.
revolting beauty (click the link. the artist is also an awesomely funny/insightful/authentic writer. )
i am pretty jesus music ignorant. what are yall's favorite hymns/songs about the cross?
happy beautiful, terrible, divine, disgusting, amazing Good Friday.
