Good Friday

Hello All,

Just these thoughts on this wonderful day...

"And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center. Now Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was:


Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, 'Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, 'I am the King of the Jews.'" Pilate answered, 'What I have written, I have written.'

John 19:17-22

"After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, 'I thirst!' Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, 'It is finished!' And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit."

John 19:28-30

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Romans 5:8

"By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren."

I John 3:16

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

John 3:16-18

We believe In Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin, led a blameless life fulfilling the law of God, died a substitutionary death on behalf of all who would believe upon Him...and rose again in demonstration of power and acceptance by God the Father three days later! We exist to beckon all men to believe the same thing and thus receive the promise of eternal life in Christ, by the power of His Holy Spirit.

Blessings...To Our Friends,
Frank Sanchez
