Good Friday....Today is the day that Christians everywhere remember the great sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.We had our Good Friday service tonight in our little historical Marble Community Church. It was a somber service as Good Friday services are meant to be. Because today Christians remember the death of Jesus.
During the service the congregations brought up sins, requests, struggles,
broken hearts, whatever may be in their souls and nailed them to a cross
made from a tree with the rough bark still on. I was humbled to see
children with great interest nail their little cards with whatever they
wrote to the cross. I was humbled to see elderly folks kneel tentatively
with limbs that do not work as well as in younger days and nail
whatever was on their hearts to the cross. I was humbled to remember the
price that was paid for us. I was humbled and somewhat anguished to
hear as each person pounded the nails. The sound of the
nails..........Then at the end Jon read the scripture,"It is
finished."..........Then in the silence he extinguished the light of the
Christ candle........."It is finished."
But Christians have
hope because we know Sunday is coming......And with its coming is the
great hope that we all await!........One day because of what Christ did
for us there will be a great resurrection! There will be a great reunion!
Yes, we as Christians know that Sunday is coming........
