When Things Went Very Bad For Jesus

It is Good Friday Remember, remember When, for Jesus, everything was nasty and sour When things were very bad for Jesus Yet, we don’t say: bad Friday Afterwards, so everything could be good for us Jesus was slapped Jesus was kidnapped Jesus was humiliated Jesus was insulted Jesus was beaten, kicked and hit From head to feet Jesus was shackled and handcuffed Jesus could not even cough Jesus was ostracized Jesus was crucified Like many Blacks and Africans Like many brothers and sisters with dark skin Yet, the heart of Jesus was pure and very clean Jesus had no friends and no fans Jesus was falsely accused Jesus was mistreated Jesus was immolated Many criminals were amused Many Satanists and perpetrators had fun With God’s only Begotten and Special Son Who had endured pain and suffering like a slave Yes, yes, Jesus was absolutely brave Yes, yes, Jesus was innocent Jesus was resilient, too decent and too pleasant It is Good Friday Brothers and sisters, let’s pray Every day is a Good and Beautiful day Amen, Amen, let’s reflect on the Day Brothers and sisters, let’s pray Remember, remember When things went very bad for Jesus Who died for our sins, Who died for us Yes, Jesus is still standing with us Jesus is God’s Unique and Special Son Watch the moon and enjoy the Sun.

Hébert, these words remind us why it is called Good Friday. You write powerfully of the suffering Jesus endured and why he had to die, to atone for mankind's sins. Thank you sharing this, I am saving it in my Faves to read again in the future. God bless you this Easter ~ John
