When I hear the words,"BLACK FRIDAY" I don't think of bargain shopping at the mall! I think of the day that Jesus Christ was crucified for my sins. Some call that day Good Friday, Dark Friday, Black Friday or Sorrowful Friday.
"At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon." Mark 15:32
In the middle of that Friday afternoon the sky turned black across the whole land! Not just in one little town, the whole land was pitch black! Think about that, total darkness everywhere.
Shortly after that the Bible says, "Jesus cried out in a loud voice and died."
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
Jesus died, was buried, and was raised back to life on the third day! Hallelujah!
"Who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame." Hebrews 12:2
Even the darkest night will end, and the SON will rise again!
WE ARE SAVED, NOT BY WHAT WE DO BUT WHAT CHRIST HAS DONE.
THANK YOU, JESUS!
IT IS FINISHED!
So today when you are out shopping and fighting the traffic and crowds, remember that Jesus loves you so much He died for you on BLACK FRIDAY. ~
With Jesus there is always, HOPE TO COPE,
