For me, its a day to reflect on the sacrifice Jesus made for me. My life would not be what is today if were it not for what happened on Good Friday. Jesus thank you for Your sacrifice for me.
On Thursday Jesus had his last meal… prayed in the garden… was arrested… was tried and convicted. Then on Friday at around 9:00 AM he was nailed to the cross. And he hung there… naked… for a total of six hours.
…..The last thing Jesus said on the cross was, “It is finished” (John 19:30) That meant… The sufferings ordained by God were over. The Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled. The ceremonial law was abolished. The price for sin was paid in full. His physical suffering was over. The plan of redemption was completed!
The only things left to take place on Friday was for him to be taken off the cross… his body cleaned… placed in a borrowed tomb… a large stone placed in front of it… and Roman guards posted to keep his body from being stolen.
Friday was over. Jesus was dead. (from Ron’s Reflections – A Pastor’s Blog)
But the story isn’t over…..Sunday’s Coming.
