Good Friday to Easter Sunday

Good Friday is a time to reflect the incredible sacrifice that God made as he sent His son to die for us. A time to remember Christ's suffering. I wanted to see what was on line for people that may be inquiring. I will post a link for a you tube video...I can't watch, it breaks me.. although it is only 3 minutes, I can't fathom or imagine the reality of those that watched. Jesus suffered much longer than minutes. I love the resurrection party of history.

I found this on internet...

Points of Interest from the Story:
• There are at least 12 different appearances of Christ in the resurrection accounts, beginning with Mary and ending with Paul. They were physical, tangible experiences with Christ eating, speaking and allowing himself to be touched.

• Jesus' resurrected body was different from his physical body. It was no longer subject to the same laws of nature. He could transcend locked doors, and yet he could still be touched and he could eat.

• Before Jesus ascended into heaven he gave the Great Commission, telling his followers to go and make disciples of all nations.

• The stone was not rolled away from the tomb so Jesus could get out. He was able to walk through walls (John 20:19) in his resurrected body. The stone was rolled away so that everyone could see that he was risen.

1 Peter 1:3 (The Message)

A New Life
3-5What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we've been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you'll have it all—life healed and whole.

AMEN! Blessing to you all, C

  1. You know, I never even thought about the stone rolling thing. Of course he didn't need it moved...we did!
