Today is Good Friday, the day when we honor the sacrifice of our LORD and Savior and Love on the Cross.

Heh. Good luck with that.

On the day we honor the sacrifice Jesus made, we need to understand (as best we can with our human minds) the Spiritual significance of what Jesus did for us on the Cross. What it…
