I took today off to observe the greatest event in history .... where God himself came down to earth as a human being to pay for our sins. This had been promised (and well-documented in the Old Testament) since Adam and Eve.
Someone once described it this way :
Big Dave's old memory wrote:
One day an honest judge's mother stood before him over a speeding ticket. Because she was guilty and the judge believed in justice, he slammed his gavel down and said "guilty, $100 fine". Then the judge left his chair, took off his robe, stood next to his mother, and paid the fine himself. This is what God did for us.
