Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last. Luke 23:46
Good Friday is a day when we remember the greatest sacrifice ever made – the sacrifice Jesus Christ made on the cross for the sins of the world. It is a sacrifice that secured eternity and paved a way for a relationship with God, something we could never do on our own. On this day, thousands of years ago, Jesus paid a debt He didn’t owe because we had a debt we could never pay.
Today, remember that sacrifice. But keep something else in mind, something even more powerful. In just a few days we remember the greatest event in history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
This weekend is a celebration of hope, opportunity, and potential. Don’t just let this time be a time that you look back. Instead, use this weekend as a time to look forward to all God has in store for you in your relationship with Jesus, and help others come to know what that relationship is all about!
Thank God for the fact that He made the ultimate sacrifice for you.
Use this weekend as a chance to invite others to experience the love, power, and mercy of Jesus. Invite them to join you tonight for “Good Friday in the Park” and to be with you this weekend at Fellowship Church!
