Good morning on this Good Friday morning.


Today we remember the day on which Jesus Christ, the Son of God, uttered the word "tetelestai - it is finished." Jesus gave Himself to appease the Father's wrath. In doing so He made it possible for us to be restored to relationship rather the Father.


The song "Above All" by Michael W Smith puts it this way:


"Above all powers

Above all kings

Above all nature and all created things

Above all wisdom and all the ways of man

You were here before the world began


Above all kingdoms

Above all thrones

Above all wonders the world has ever known

Above all wealth and treasures of the earth

There's no way to measure what you're worth


Crucified

Laid behind the stone

You lived to die

Rejected and alone


Like a rose trampled on the ground

You took the fall

And thought of me

Above all"


Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26: "For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes."


While we remember Christ's death today, we look ahead to His imminent return.


Have a blessed Good Friday.


Blessings.
