It’s Friday… But Sunday’s Comin’!


My mother-in-law sent this to me this morning. It’s quite short, but I think it does serve to remind us well of what must have seemed, to Christ’s disciples, to be the darkest hour possible. It also serves to remind us of the joy we have in our savior’s death for us.

Often, we tend to focus on the violence and horror of Good Friday – we weep for what was done to our Savior. And yes, that is part of the reverence of Holy Week. But I urge you: don’t forget that Resurrection Sunday is coming! He died that we might never die, “so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Rom 5:21)

Amen!
