What You Did For Me (Good Friday) !!!
The Ninth Hour
Today is Good Friday!! Did you take time to give God praise. I thank God for sending his "Only" begotten Son (Jesus) to die and save my soul. Through the sacrifices on the ninth hour (3:00 Pm), Jesus died, for you and me. Therefore, at 3PM, I stopped my day, just to pray and give Him thanks. Jesus died an miserable death just to redeem my soul and I love Him for doing this. Although, the ninth hour has passed, don't take advantage of another moment. Stop and give Him your time in prayer and Thank Him for his sacrifice.
Crucifixion was not only one of the most disgraceful forms of death, it was one of the most dreaded methods of execution in the ancient world. Accounts of crucifixions are recorded among early civilizations, most likely originating with the Persians and then spreading to the Assyrians, Scythians, Carthaginians, Germans, Celts and Britons. This type of capitol punishment was primarily reserved for traitors, captive armies, slaves and the worst of criminals.
Jesus final hours on the cross lasted approximately from 9 am to 3 PM, a period of about 6 hours. What excruciating pain, he must have been in!!! HIs own people betrayed and murdered him for being a man of God; the one that came to save them. SAD!! It's hurts me, he did this for me; but he knew best.
THE GREATEST MAN IN HISTORY
Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.
Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.
Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.
He had no army, yet kings feared Him.
He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.
I feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us!
