As we prepare to celebrate Resurrection Sunday in all of its glory, remember to take some time today to meditate on WHY this Friday is called “GOOD”. Until we understand the significance of Good Friday, we can’t truly understand Resurrection Sunday.
TODAY…meditate on the depth of Jesus’ sacrifice for us in his suffering a humiliating, bloody death by crucifixion—a form of death reserved for the most violent and vicious criminals, but most undeserving to be suffered by CHRIST. Just imagine…SCORNED. SPAT ON. BEATEN. SCOURGED. CROWNED WITH THORNS. PIERCED. NAILED TO A RUGGED CROSS…JESUS suffered for us, in all its pain and intensity, but still CHRIST didn’t Quit on the Cross so that you and I wouldn’t be lost—NOW THAT’S LOVE!✝️♥️
RISING from all the pain and agony of crucifixion comes the GOOD NEWS of EASTER—RESURRECTION SUNDAY IS ON THE WAY!🙌🏼☝🏾 BECAUSE CHRIST LIVES, those who Believe and Receive HIM have New Life!✝️🙏🏽 Thank you, FATHER, for GOOD FRIDAY!🩸☝🏾🙌🏼♥️🙏🏽~M. Ford
It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. (Luke 23:44)
