Day 44: One Ordinary Day


It was just an Ordinary Day.

Everyone going about their business,

but there was some commotion

as people on the streets were watching

A MAN~

carrying a cross to

HIS

Execution.

A MAN

called

JESUS.

But

HE wasn’t just an ordinary MAN~

as

HE claimed to be the

KING OF THE JEWS~

THE SAVIOR!

Yet why would

A KING carry a cross?

So some followed

HIM to the hill

where there were two more crosses

made out of ordinary wood~

nothing special, nothing glittery or gold

& two ordinary men.

Just an ordinary day or was it?

And then it happened~

this

MAN CALLED JESUS

was brutally crucified

with every knock of the hammer against the nails

that hung

HIM on the cross,

&

HE let them.

So

HE had to be ordinary~

because the other two men also hung

on the same crosses with

HIM.

And then it happened.

A conversation took place

between

Three Ordinary Men who hung on three ordinary crosses on

just an ordinary day.

One Said~

If you are a King, then get off

& the other Ordinary man said~

“If you are a King, take me with you”

& then

THE KING

utters the words

“today you will be in paradise with me“ (Luke 23:43)

And HIS next words,

or should I say

HIS LAST WORDS

Were said~

“IT IS FINISHED” (John 19:3O)

The ending to an Ordinary day or was it?

Because something

EXTRAORDINARY

happened~

The earth shook! The veil was torn

“IT IS FINISHED”

Just an Ordinary Man on an Ordinary Cross

Finished it all on a day

that was

EXTRAORDINARY

because every day with

JESUS

is never Ordinary

because

HE DID THE EXTRAORDINARY

for you and I

& did what no ordinary man would do~

Die in our place. Buried in our place

& Rose for us~

So that we can live beyond

our ordinary selves the moment

we are clothed in

HIS RICHES

that

JESUS was born to die to rise for.

Let's

FAST

from being Ordinary right this moment~ because the time is now as we only have today.

And all we "Ordinaries" have to do is

BELIEVE & RECEIVE

in the midst of our ordinary~

Because

GOD SO LOVED the world that

HE made JESUS

an Ordinary Baby so HE could make us

EXTRAORDINARY!

Oh

JESUS did it for you~

Ordinary you & Ordinary me

&

your ordinary neighbor, family member & even your ordinary enemy.

So how many Ordinary men died on the cross

On that

ONE ORDINARY DAY?

Only one remained Ordinary.

How about you?
