I mean, that thing is good. I wanna be friends with it.

Some Good Friday thoughts ...

From Mike Gendron's address tonight at Providence Church regarding Christ's 6th saying on the cross: "It is finished." (John 19:30)

Q: What does Jesus mean by "it"?
A: 10 accomplishments of Jesus when "it" was finished:
  1. Jesus' blood was shed.
  2. Divine justice was satisfied.
  3. Atonement was achieved.
  4. Sin was forgiven.
  5. Redemption was paid.
  6. Reconciliation was accomplished.
  7. Death was conquered.
  8. Righteousness was perfected.
  9. Salvation was secured.
  10. Heaven was opened.

From Ted Winton's address tonight at Providence Church regarding Christ's 7th saying on the cross: "Father, into your hands I commit my Spirit!" (Luke 23:46)

Q: What does this saying mean?

A: What it means to Him ... A commitment and dedication to His Father's plan for His life.

A: What it means to us ... Something we must share with Jesus, trusting in the Father's will for our lives, our futures.
