We all like the easy way to do something. Why have it hard if you don't need it to be hard? This lets us ask the question on this Good Friday; Could Jesus have chosen a different path, an easier road and avoided the hardship of the cross? Could a different journey have taken Him to the same destination? Could He have lived a long good life, taken an early retirement, traveled the world, and then sat down on His throne on high? Sometimes it's the hard way that's the only way to obtain what you need to gain. Without the shedding of blood there was no salvation. Jesus never planned an easier road but asked for strength to travel the road assigned to Him by His Father. We call today Good Friday because Jesus stayed on the hard road to accomplish our full salvation. If you are on a hard road today do not lose hope but hold on, press in, keep the faith, and be a good soldier. God will come to you and great will be your reward.
Today we celebrate Good Friday with our 10:30 service with Bethel Family Church in Glace Bay. Tomorrow morning we have a Men's Breakfast 8:30 Salvation Army Community Church in Sydney.
Sunday morning is Easter Sunday with special music and anointed word.
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
