It's a Good Friday

 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, {fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross}, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Hebrews 12:1-3

And walk in love, just as Christ also loved you
 and {gave Himself up for us},
an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.
Ephesians 5:2 NAS
