Is Friday a good day?

Of course it is. We Americans love our Fridays, don’t we?

Hi five and TGIF all-around, even for those who don’t believe in the G. To some, God is more palatable when He’s a letter. Probably not a coincidence G is the seventh letter of the alphabet, but that’s another post for another day.

Speaking of palatable, who loves TGI Fridays? On their website, you’ll find the founding promise “Bringing people together to socialize and celebrate the freeing and liberating spirit of Friday.” Great concept and great food. I hear their ribs are to die for.

But what about this Friday. It’s not just any Friday, it’s Good Friday.

The real TGIF.

What if on this Good Friday, we stood on this founding promise?

“Bringing people together in community to celebrate the freeing and liberating Spirit of God on Good Friday.”

I’m not in fear of copyright issues, God was here first.

Good Friday. Good News. And never mind the ribs, Jesus thought we were to die for.

If you truly believed Jesus had you on His mind as He hung on that cross, how would it change your life today?

Well He did. Believe it. It’s the Gospel truth.

On this Good Friday, let’s thank God and remember who Jesus was thinking of when He became the ultimate sacrifice. You and me.

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain.

And the best news of all? He didn’t stay dead.

In the Message, 2 Timothy 1:8, reads this way:

“Since the appearance of our Savior, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus.”

So on the third day we will say TGFS, Thank God For Sunday.

It is finished.

He is Risen.

A divine plan of mercy and grace fulfilled.

Once. And. For. ALL.

The angel said to the women,

“Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said…”Matthew 28:5-6       Jesus Tomb Easter Bulletin Cover

As He came and stood in the midst of the disciples, do you know the first thing the risen Savior, Jesus Christ said to them?

“Peace be with you.” John 20:19b NKJV

And He said to them again in verse 21 “Peace to you!…”

So peace be with you, and peace to you.

Thank God it’s Good Friday, and Praise God Sunday is coming.

Love in the Risen Savior,

Doris
