From Good Friday to Easter Sunday (24): At the cross of Christ, we see love, eternal love, the love of Christ.

Welcome to the twentieth-fourth stage on our journey from Good Friday to Easter Sunday: At the cross of Christ, we see love, eternal love, the love of God.

Psalm 114

When the people of Israel left Egypt,
    when Jacob’s descendants left that foreign land,
Judah became the Lord’s holy people,
    Israel became his own possession.The Red Sea looked and ran away;
    the Jordan River stopped flowing.
The mountains skipped like goats;
    the hills jumped around like lambs.What happened, Sea, to make you run away?
    And you, O Jordan, why did you stop flowing?
You mountains, why did you skip like goats?
    You hills, why did you jump around like lambs?Tremble, earth, at the Lord’s coming,
    at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who changes rocks into pools of water
    and solid cliffs into flowing springs.

Good News Translation (GNT)Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

‘The Lord is high above all nations… Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high?… Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, who turns the hard rock into springs of water’ (Psalms 113:4-5; 114:7-8). The Lord is greater than we could ever imagine. There is no greatness like the greatness of the Lord. All human greatness cannot even begin to compare with the greatness of God. His greatness is not only the greatness of His power. It is also the greatness of His love. When we sing, ‘How great Thou art’, we sing not only of His power – ‘Thy power throughout the universe displayed’. We sing also of His love – ‘And when I think that God His Son not sparing, sent Him to die – I scarce can take it in, that on the Cross my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin…’(Mission Praise, 506).

Watch out for the final stage on our journey from Good Friday to Easter Sunday: In the resurrection of Christ, we see love, eternal love, the love of God.

  1. Charlie great post. It made me think of Psalm 8:4-6 when David asked: What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: —How Great Thou Art!

  2. Great post Charlie. When I read it my thoughts went to David in Psalm 8:4-6..What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:- –Truly, How Great Thou Art! Happy Resurrection Sunday! Blessings and Peace.
