Good Friday


Good Friday is always celebrated the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day, Christians remember the suffering and death on the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection can be found in the Bible in several different places: Matthew 27:27-28:8, Mark 15:16-16:19, Luke 23:26-24:35, and John 19:16-20:30. Take time this weekend to reflect on all that Jesus has done for you! He sacrificed everything for you!

This weekend, Christians all over the world will be blessed by reading the story of Jesus' death and resurrection. It is a time of reflection and celebration. But for billions of people who don't know about Jesus and cannot read the Bible for themselves there is no celebration, only a deafening silence. I believe that Jesus wants everyone to be able to hear the gospel, to believe in Him and know Him in a personal way. Let us pray for all those in this world who do not know Jesus. That someone would go and share in a way that they can understand in their language the truth of the gospel and that their hearts would be receptive to receive Jesus.
