Good Friday

For God so Loved the World

He who was without sin made the ultimate sacrifice, Christ gave up His life and died on the cross for our sins. He died so that we might have life and have it more abundantly. By His blood we are cleansed and our sins are washed away. On this Good Friday let us reflect on the sacrifice that Christ made for us. It is the greatest sacrifice of all. He did what no one else would do for us.

The Resurrection {By M. S. Lowndes}


THE RESURRECTION

We hold so close to our hearts
The cross where Jesus died
But so much more than the blood-stained cross
Is that Jesus came back to life

The stone’s been rolled away
The tomb lay open and bare
They looked for Him, and then the angel said
That He is no longer here

Oh what joy they must have felt
To see Him just once more
To eat with Him, to drink with Him
To receive Him back as Lord

So much did He accomplish
Through His death upon the cross
And in His rising from the dead
He reconciled us back to God

Nothing else could bridge the gap
That sin had wrenched apart
Now we can freely go to God
And receive Christ in our hearts

Good Friday

 

Tomorrow many Christians around the world will celebrate  Good Friday in remembrance of how Jesus Christ came down from Heaven to earth and died on the cross for our sins in order that we all can have everlasting life if we serve him and live according to his commandments.  One of the things that Jesus taught during his time on earth was ‘Love’.   Loving ourselves and loving one another.  Love is so much lacking in the world today and it is part of the reason that there is so much violence, so much killings, so much disregard for human life.  People kill one another as if it is no big deal; having no understanding of what it is to love.  Where there is love there is understanding, there is forgiveness, there is the desire to protect the ones you love.  Where there is no love the exact opposite happens.  Unless we have love for one another there will never truly be peace in this world.  Jesus taught about love and forgiveness.  How many of us live by those rules?  He who was without sin loved us so much that he gave his life for us.  Can we love one another enough so we can stop killing each other?   Let this be a time to reflect;  to give thanks to God for sending his son to die on the cross for us.  Let us make the changes necessary in our lives and start loving one another.  A blessed Good Friday to everyone.
