Centuries ago, darkness was convinced it had the world in its grip and victory in the bag, but then again it didn’t really know its foe. That day was a dark one, the friends and family of Jesus had just witnessed him mercilessly beaten and crucified on a cross. Grief stricken and confused by the course of events, it must have seemed like darkness had overtaken them, after all the Messiah, the one they had been waiting for, had just been put to death. Yet, at that moment so much more was happening…light itself was breaking into the darkness.
The Passion of Christ is a powerful moment in history. It speaks of an unconditional love we cannot fully comprehend. A light so powerful that darkness cannot stand it. Jesus, love and light, made the ultimate sacrifice to bring freedom and restoration.
Imagine what could be accomplished if we received God’s unconditional love more freely and in turn loved more unconditionally. Imagine if we let that light shine within us…oh how it would break into the darkness and the darkness would flee.
