Holy Friday - Good Friday

My People

Greetings of the new day.

To God be all the glory great things He hath done for us especially for giving us life even for today, may His Name be forever magnified in Jesus Name – Amen.

It’s Friday, the 5th day in the Holy Week and we are still obliged to continue to keep it holy because of what Christ did for us in going up the Cross to die for us.

Today we remember that Jesus asked for the cup to pass Him by, but also asked that the Will of God be done and since it was the Will of God that He suffer death in order to reconcile mankind to God, He accepted it without quavering.

Today we remember that Judas Iscariot finally sold His Master for 30 pieces of silver or 30 shekels and with a kiss and when He found out that it was no joke and the Master was actually arrested and humiliated, he went and hanged himself.

Today we remember that He Who could do “vanishing acts” refused to walk away when the Jews came for Him, He humbly followed them even as they insulted and assaulted Him.

Today we remember that Pontius Pilate in differing to the Sanhedrin and even in direct rejection of his wife’s dream and counseling condemned an innocent man to death and did the ceremonial act of washing his hands absolving himself from the act.

Today we remember that He was taken to the Hills overlooking Jerusalem and they crucified Him alongside two notorious robbers.

Today we remember that while on the Cross, He made 7 sentences that have become the pillars of true Christianity since then.

Christ had to die, no other blood was pure enough to really atone for the sins of mankind and since continuous sacrifice of rams and colts had not actually saved man, only the “Holy Blood” could wash away man’s sins for ever.

With this Sacrifice, all other sacrifices were abolished as no other Blood could compare with the Blood of Jesus.

Today as we commemorate the “Crucifixion of Christ” popularly called Good Friday, let us bring God back to the fore in our lives.

And the God of abundance shall make us abide in His abundance which bringeth no sorrows with it.


Bless and be Blessed
