This year Good Friday has a different feel than last.
Easter has come a bit too fast for my liking and my mind has been on everything else except where the focus should be!
Easter is a time for celebration and our thoughts should be turning to Jesus who, after all, is what this weekend is all about!
This year, however, Passover and Good Friday is TODAY. I have always believed we should celebrate Passover along with our Jewish brethren but we seldom hear about this most important Jewish holiday. Sad, really, many Christian churches can’t celebrate this part of our Christianity as it coincides with Judaism.
“Good” is connected with Friday because Jesus died for all our sins…which is Good. Sunday, Easter, HE rose from the dead and we praise HIM with thankfulness.
Today, we recognize Passover. It is a festival to freedom; the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt. Liberation by God of those led out of Egypt by Moses.
Passover begins today and ends on April 27.
So, for this weekend I will praise HIM and try to forget everything else happening in my life. I will put aside any worries and put my trust in the Lord. Gather around the table whether it be on Easter Sunday or for your Seder meal and give thanks!
HAPPY EASTER AND HAPPY PASSOVER.
