Good Friday Not Just Any Friday
“30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” John 19:30 NIV
Not your ordinary Friday
No today is not any ordinary Friday, it is Good Friday! So much happened today such a long time ago, that changed the course of history for believers. Our Lord and Savor was crucified and died on the cross but so much more happened that day as well. A new covenant was given to replace the old covenant, witnesses exclaimed Him God’s Son, there was a great earthquake. Read Matthew 27 for the account of that day by Jesus’ disciple Matthew. In the verses Matthew 27:45-66, you can find the details listed above. If you would like to dig deeper download the Free Study Guide that I prepared to go along with today’s post. NotJustAnyFriday (1)
When Jesus said “It is finished” the prophecies had been fulfill concerning Jesus’ life here on earth except for one that would take place on the third day. God’s will had been done up to this point. God’s plan had come with a great price but a price that I am thankful for everyday. The celebrating that a great crowd made on Palm Sunday is no where in comparison to the celebration we will have when we reach our heavenly destination. It breaks my heart to read how my Savior suffered for me this day. Giving what I wouldn’t even comprehend being willing to do for others especially those I don’t even know. That is why today I say “Yes, It is a Good Friday! Not just an ordinary Friday!”
Happy Good Friday,
In His Love, Crisi
