It’s that time of the year again that’s set apart for us to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. A day that reminds us of the love that made him endure excruciating pain and death on the cross so that we can have eternal life.
But it’s not all gloom and doom. Good Friday is also a day of celebration, as we remember the victory that Christ’s death and resurrection brought us. It’s a day to sing and dance, and be thankful for the unending grace and mercy that we receive from God.
On this day, churches around the world will hold solemn services, where we will sing hymns, pray, and listen to sermons that remind us of the significance of this day. We will also partake in the Holy Communion, where we will remember Christ’s sacrifice and the covenant that he made with us.
For some, Good Friday is a day to fast and abstain from certain foods, as a sign of mourning and repentance. But for others, it’s a day to indulge in delicious meals and treats, as a way to celebrate the end of Lent and the beginning of the Easter season.
So, whether you’re fasting or feasting, remember the reason for the season. Take some time to reflect on the love that Christ has for you, and the sacrifice that he made so that you can have eternal life. And most importantly, celebrate the victory that his death and resurrection brought us.
Good Friday 2023 is a day that we will all remember. A day of reflection, celebration, and thanksgiving. Let’s make it count!
