REFLECTIONS ON GOOD FRIDAY
Today, we as Christians celebrate this day as Good Friday; It is truly OUR HOLY DAY FOR REFLECTION. For many farmers it is the day for planting their seeds for fruit bearing. It is truly a very unusual day when you think deeply upon it. And of course yes, we will ask the question, what is Good Friday? Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
How will you spend your GOOD FRIDAY?
We at VINE AND BRANCH WORLD MINISTRIES along with millions of BELIEVERS from all around the world will observe this day as a day of REFLECTION. Reflecting on the life, death and resurrection of JESUS CHRIST as well as our own individual lives. Let us pause and meditate on the life and death of Jesus as we experience the pain and anguish that Jesus felt as He hung on the Cross and bore our sins and the sins of the World. Now let us watch this short Video Clip and reflect upon what this day really means to us.
As Jesus hung there on the cross, nails in his hands, feet and side. Thrones on his head, bleeding from head to toe, he was teaching us the lessons of LOVE, COURAGE, PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING, FAITH, and FORGIVENESS. He showed us that Strength is made perfect in weakness. This next video clip is a short version of all that Jesus did for us. Now reflect upon this.
In closing, let me make this one thing very clear, and that is this, “we are citizens of a city of God which we did not build and can never destroy, and that city stands on this day taller than anything that we can ever image in our small minds.” Before His death, Jesus told us that if this temple was ever destroyed, he would rise up and rebuild it within three days. No one at the time could imagine what He was talking about, because of the resurrection of CHRIST, we now live in that city of God that no man can destroy. On this GOOD FRIDAY, let us reflect upon what Jesus did for us, and now what we can do for others. This video clip will help take you to that special place that allows your heart to be filled with peace, joy, and love. Now watch and pray.
This is our day of PRAYER, MEDITATION AND REFLECTION, let us pray for each other, then reach out and express our love for each other. I pray for you and you pray for me. I remain your brother in JESUS CHRIST,
