“Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” – which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Matthew 27:46

Good Friday as we know it should also be referred to as black Friday.  In Acts 2:20 Peter recites “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood”.  This was foreshadowing of things to come.  Good Friday is indeed a dark day.  It is the day we lost our saviour due to our own negligence and inability to believe and trust in his words.

Whether you are a believer or non-believer… on this day of preparation for the passover, some 2000 years ago; there was a cross; Jesus was crucified on it; he was resurrected, and giving his life was the ultimate sacrifice for the atonement of our sins…

Remember to give thanks and to count your many blessings over this Easter Weekend!  May God be with you!
