Good Friday


As we are leading up to Easter we have to recognize Good Friday which gives substance for sermons. Churches are packed on Easter with families coming together as a tradition to share a service together. Easter sermons focus on the last hours that Jesus suffered on the cross dying for our sins and his resurrection with all power in his hands giving believers eternal life. You can read the full account in the Bible in the book of Matthew. This is a great time to read the story or reread it to refresh your memory to get a greater and deeper visual picture of the day and time as we reflect on these life changing historical events.

This sacrifice is something that we have to keep fresh in our minds and spirit to remain strong to walk upright in our daily lives honoring Jesus. We cannot only think about the crucifixion at a set time each year and use it just as a reason to have a family gathering. It must go much deeper than that for it to have real meaning in our lives. It is the acceptance of Jesusí actions and itís after affect that should foster the sense of responsibility to attend and participate in ongoing worship services throughout the year and support the spreading of the good news.

We cannot forget the cross. The powerful significance of the cross is to assist us in remembering that Christ suffered in our place for us. If we really think about it like that, the more it will push us to get deeper into the Word to build a stronger Christian walk. Placing an invisible cross on our hearts and keeping it in our spirit can act as a shield against sin. Wearing a cross around your neck, carrying one on your key chain or even as simple as a bookmark can be a simple daily reminder to you of who you are and what you believe. This can also open doors for conversations with others about your faith and beliefs which can be a turning point in their life to step out of darkness into the marvelous light of Godís love, grace and mercy.

May this Good Friday and every one going forward not only be thought of as a day of suffering but also is remembered as a day of amazing grace. Letís make sure that as Christianís we live in a way that shows our appreciation.

God Bless!
