Good Friday

Link to Devotion: Luke 23:26-49 & Message

Link to Song: Were you there?

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?


Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?

Were you there when they pierced him in the side?
Were you there when they pierced him in the side?
Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they pierced him in the side?

 

Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?

 

Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?

 

Link to Song, "At the Cross," to listen to as you reflect on this question:

-Refection: Take some time to reflect on some of the items used on Jesus during the crucifixion. What can these items signify or represent? For example, some might argue that the hammer and nails speak of cruelty. We affix things with nails. And the hammer and nails were meant to affix an innocent man to suffering and public shame. That is cruel. What about some of the other objects like the rooster, dice, sign, vinegar? What do they represent to you this day?
