It was a dark Friday because God looked away from His sacrificially lamb who was hunged on the tree for the sins of the world. This was evident by his outburst on the cross when the weight of the world’s sin was heavy on him. The scriptures says, “About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”Matthew 27: 46
Yes it was dark because the devil thought he had done his best to frustrate the plan of salvation. The darkest Friday the world has ever seen. It was dark because for a while, it appeared that the hope and expectations of the new believers was dashed because Jesus Christ, the founder of the christian faith and the savior of the world, was “unjustly’ crucified! “When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” John 19:30.
It was a ‘bad’ Friday until Easter morning. In other words, it wasn’t called “Good Friday” until Easter Sunday was experienced. Indeed, ‘The darkest hour of the night is just before the dawn’. There’s hope, even in the worst of circumstances. So if you can see everything from the perception that Christ has made you an overcomer, then every bad day will become a good day. Job testified saying, “At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail.” Job 14:7. Don’t give up on your expectations. Trust in God to turn your darkness into light. There is a sure hope for your tomorrow! Christ has made you a winner. You’re winning! Yes, we are winning!
Happy Easter! Cheers!
