Christians observes Good Friday with prayers, reconciliation

Christians observes Good Friday with prayers, reconciliation”

In past centuries (or even decades), most communication was done face to face, or on the phone. Were you there when they crucified my Lord? There's hope for the dying, hope of a new life - hope of living forever and ever.

We can text, email, phone and Skype nearly anyone in the world at any time we want and have a reply within seconds. "It is very successful in getting the Christian message out onto the streets in a visible way", said Father Parrish.

In some communities there are ecumenical services shared by various congregations and churches. The next morning, he was produced in front of Pontius Pilate, a Roman governor, who asked Jewish leaders to judge the case of Jesus Christ.

According to the books, the high priest finally said, "I adjure you, by the Living God, to tell us, are you the Anointed One, the Son of God?" The day is a time to grieve over the sin of man and to meditate and rejoice upon God's love in giving His only Son for the redemption of sin.

We shouldn't forget the principle of God paying a debt that he did not owe.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, "Drawing inspiration from the teachings of Jesus on this Good Friday". Where you there when they pierced him in the side?

One of the most attractive quotes I have heard about Easter is this one: "On Easter Day, the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer".

In different traditions, the date is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday or Easter Friday.

We, too, are invited to be part of the movement of first believers.

What are we remembering during these days.

Thursday - Proponents of a Thursday crucifixion think there are too many events occurring for a Friday crucifixion to be possible. St. Paul writes: "For if we have grown into union with him through a death like his, we shall also be united with him in the resurrection".

Reading the story of Jesus' arrest, trial, and crucifixion today, we have the benefit of knowing that it's all leading up to the triumph of Easter. How do we apply these words to our own lives? All who trust in Jesus have the forgiveness of sins and eternal life.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

In a sense the nature of the day makes it one of our most ecumenical days of proclamation, that is, our salvation won by the blood of the Lamb shed on the cross for us. "This being a sign of respect to the Lord for what he has done and continues to do for us", said Anthony Cosme, a Puerto Rican baseball player attending MBU.

Caleb Bechtold, junior Theology and Ministry major, reiterates this thought, saying, "Holy Week is an attempt to recognize who Jesus is... sadly, the Romans didn't understand who Jesus was". He also said the blood that oozed from Jesus' hands has helped Christians regain dominion over all that they touch.
