Good Friday (from the now obsolete senses pious, holy of the word “good”), also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians and it commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
Based on the details of the Gospels, the Crucifixion of Jesus was most probably on a Friday (John 19:42).The estimated year of Good Friday is AD 33, by two different groups, and originally as AD 34 by Isaac Newton.
Another accounting places the date as Friday, 3 April AD 33.
Are we ever really ready? It’s a good job there is a cut-off date – December 25th- or we would be buying, baking and decorating for ever. After years of learning better habits, I still tend to occasionally fall into the same mess.
Right now I am making serviettes for our dining table. Red with white machine embroidery on each. They will be pretty as is but if the cut-off date doesn’t come too soon, I might also embroider each person’s name on one.. See what I mean?
I wasn’t going to bake much but hubby wanted cookies for his friends..so I made one batch of Do-Dos. But one batch alone on a plate looks a little sad and the cut-off date isn’t here yet…— See what I mean?
I am making a new cut-off date. It is today! Want to join me?
Thank God that He doesn’t make a cut-off date for us. He generously extends and re-extends time for us to ask Him into our lives.
He came into this world as a baby…..God became man…so that He could die on the cross for our sin, our wrong-doing, and make a way for us to be in fellowship with Him.
But He is a Gentleman. We have to ask Him into our life.
Because what if He suddenly decided on a cut-off date? And we missed Christmas in every way?
