It’s Friday, but Sunday’s coming.
It’s Good Friday – and it’s only “good” because of what happened on Sunday. And it’s so easy to fast forward past Friday right to Sunday.
But, we should pause here on Friday. We need to remember Friday.
Friday was the day of Jesus’ physical pain. It was the day when his friends abandoned him. It was when he paid for all of our sin through his death.
Friday is necessary for Sunday to have meaning.
I hate thinking about Friday. About someone taking my sin. Suffering for me.
It’s Friday. Sunday’s coming.
