Where Do I Stand This Holy Thursday?
The question which naturally arises on this night, on the eve of Christ’s death, is where do I stand?
Do I stand among the righteous, pure, self-sufficient ones or do I stand with the poor in spirit, those captive to their woundedness, and oppressed in the face of their innate sinfulness?
Do I need saved and am I humble enough to ask for help?
If I can’t, then Jesus died in vain, the power of his crucifixion is wasted on me and I will be unable to rejoice on Easter Sunday.
