Good Friday Devotional

One of my all-time favorite quotes.  It stirs me up each time I read it.

I simply argue that the cross should be raised at the center of the marketplace as well as on the steeple of the church. I am recovering the claim that Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles, but on a cross between two thieves; on the town’s garbage heap; at a crossroad so cosmopolitan that they had to write His title in Hebrew and Latin and Greek … at the kind of place where cynics talk smut, and thieves curse, and soldiers gamble. Because that is where He died. And that is what He died for. And that is what He died about. That is where churchmen ought to be and what churchmen ought to be about.
— George Macleod

READ:  John  18-19

What sticks with you most after reading this portion of Scripture?  Imagine yourself as one of the characters in the story, experience the story from their shoes.   What do you feel?  What do you see?  What is happening to your faith?
