The day Jesus died before He rose again; Good Friday; Isn't it such an awesome day. This morning we had a great service with music, readings, communion and everyone had the chance to hammer a nail into the cross. We had some hiccups along the way, but the importance of the service was not overlooked.
I am always stunned by the name Good Friday. It has such an important meaning, but in other ways in seems so flawed. It is so good because Jesus died for everything we have done wrong, it is good because we know He rose again to conquer death so we can live forever with Him in heaven.
I look forward to Good Friday services not because I really want to go to another service, but because I love the somber environment that occurs during the service. I love that for at least one day a year, everyone gets a clear and serious view of what Jesus did. It is such a great day to share the wonderful message of God.
