Good Friday and ~What it Means~

Mark 9:31 says”For he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And when he is killed, after three days he will rise.”

As many prepare their families for all the festivities that they will be encountering. Pastors and Clergy will be preparing for their message for this weekend. While some will have Easter Productions at their churches. I was wondering, what will the messages be?

The message I am talking about is how our hearts will give a message of Jesus Christ. Will it be so traditional as always or will we mediate on the night our Lord was about to be betrayed into the hands of sinners? So often we hear this message and we become all emotional but have no real message on the inside of us.

I believe in my heart that while Jesus was on that cross He was thinking of what the Father had told Him, that it was almost finished. I think back to the two thieves that was on the cross and one said to Him “ when you enter into your kingdom remember me” even at His dying Jesus still ministered to the broken and lost man. “Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise. Let me ask you this,”can you imagine hearing Jesus saying those very words? Let the message of Christ rein in our hearts for salvation is for everyone!

Perhaps you stumbled upon my devotion today and you don’t know Jesus, today is a great day for you to accept Him. Just pray this simple prayer. Lord, Jesus I know that you died for all mankind and I am a sinner in need of a savior. I repent of my sins and I ask you to come into my life today and help me be who you created me to be. In Jesus name, I pray AMEN! And just like that you are born into the Kingdom of God.
