Good Friday 19 April 2019
45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. – Matthew 27:45
Jesus is hanging on the cross when darkness coves over all the land. While this was probably a literal darkness, it is also a spiritual darkness. Hatred seems to be carrying the day. Death appears to be defeating Jesus. Satan seems to have won the war. But we know better because we look at Good Friday through the lens of Easter Sunday. This is why the Friday on which Jesus dies is called “Good Friday.” Whenever darkness comes over your life please remember that darkness never has the final say. Jesus is your light shining in the darkness bringing you hope, peace, strength, forgiveness and life.

P.S. Please join me at 12:00pm today for our Good Friday service of the cross.
