So, today is Good Friday. Most schools are out and many people are off from work. But why?
Well, because today is the day that we celebrate the death of Jesus. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for us. There is no way we could ever possibly deserve it, which makes it so incredible. God loves us with an everlasting, unconditional love. It's amazing. We are horrible sinners, but God chose to redeem us through the death of Jesus.
But it didn't end there. Jesus defeated death by coming back to life 3 days after he died! He visited with the disciples and taught them.
Then after he ascended, he sent the Holy Spirit to be our counselor and comforter. How incredible our God is that he would do this for us!
So, as we get together with family this weekend, lets remember that Jesus death & resurrection are the reasons that we are getting together. We are celebrating the great love and grace that our Father, God has extended to us.
& lets continue to remember this in the coming days, months, and years.
Christ died, and is risen. We are redeemed.
