Good Friday

Today is the day, as Christians, we celebrate Good Friday. This is the day Jesus Christ was crucified for the sins of all man. He paid for us to save us from the wrath of God. Since no man is perfect nor sinless there is a debt owed. Only a perfect man could pay that debt. That perfect man who fulfilled the Law and the Prophets, Old Testament prophesies and law, was Jesus Christ the Perfect Son of God, Who laid aside His rights in order to tabernacle here among us. All of the traditions that the Jewish nation celebrated and still celebrate point to the cross.

Today, we look back at that dark day, when the earth itself moaned in grief over the death of its Creator, solemn but thankful. Not saddened, because we know that early on Easter morning the other celebration takes place and that is of HIS Resurrection. Without this, Christians of all men should be pitied. But because of this fact of history, we know that though we all may die from this earth and leave this earthly body, we will live eternally in Him and with Him. It truly does take the sting out of death. Let us sorrow now for Joy comes in the morning!!

Mark 14:32-15:47

Happy Easter. For Easter and what it represents, the resurrection, is truly the single most important event in history. Thanks for sharing your feelings of the true meaning of this great holiday.
