We created these daily readings for the week of Easter to help prepare our hearts to remember and celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus our Savior! We encourage you to spend some time each day in these readings, not only reading them but processing their implications on your life and your love for God!
Good Friday: “Right Time”
The good news of the gospel begins with the bad news… we were sinners in need of a Savior!
“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:6-8
At just the right time Jesus came to die. That “right time” was not a year, or a century, or a period of time, but was when we were powerless, it was while we were still sinners. That was the right time for Jesus to die. The Friday of Easter Week is called Good Friday. Here’s what is so good about that day. Because of what Jesus did for us on the cross we don’t have to clean ourselves up or get our life straight before we come to Jesus, we just come as we are trusting in His finished work of the cross!
