Praise the Lord for we know the great victory that was won at the Cross. The blood of Jesus paid in full the wages for all of our sin. The song writer penned, 'My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought! My sin, not in part but the whole, Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more, Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!' It's strange how we view the test of our faith before we see the fulfillment of His promise in our life. Jesus prayed for the cup of what He had to endure to be passed from Him. Have you ever prayed for a problem to go away? Looking back it's been at those crosses that we had to bare that we came to a crossroad and God used the cross to point us towards a new day. Good Friday is not our greatest defeat but alas it's our greatest victory.
Today @10:30 there is a Good Friday service at Bethel Family Church in Glace Bay. Then tomorrow evening @7 is The "Passion of Christ." This will be held under the direction of Mary MacLean and is at our church location, 500 Terrace St. Everyone is welcome and there is no charge.
Easter Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'The Force Awakens.' The force of all creation could not be held in the grave but He's Alive! Invite a friend to join you this weekend.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
