Next Friday, April 3rd, we will celebrate one of the greatest days for the Christian. It is the day Jesus died on the Cross for us. There He paid a debt He did not owe; a price we could not pay. Although it was a horrible six hours, it is the ultimate picture of His love for us. As He was on the Cross, the Word tells us “For the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame …”
On that Good Friday, beginning at 9:00 a.m., I will post the seven sayings of Jesus on the Cross (one each hour). You would know that Jesus did not make these statements in these one-hour increments but they will be posted in order on that schedule that we might pause and reflect on each one.
Because of what Jesus did on the Cross for us, it is not only Good Friday for us it is a Great Friday! Because even though it will be Friday, Sunday is coming.
Have a great day in Him!
