Friday, Saturday and Sunday

They were three crucial days in the history of humanity.

On Friday, Christ died to pay for the sins of his people.
On Saturday, the dead body of Christ laid buried in a grave.
Early on Sunday morning, the Lord Jesus arose victoriously from the grave.
Within three days Christ obtained the redemption of His people.

This story is the Gospel, the best news ever heard in the world.
Those who trust in Christ, God forgives and leads them until they reach the eternal bliss of his heavenly home.

During those three days, the disciples had various experiences.
On Friday they were confused and ran away.
On Saturday they were sad and anxious.
On Sunday they rejoiced and worshiped the Lord Jesus.

During our pilgrimage on earth, we will have our "Fridays" and "Saturdays" ... but today is Sunday, the day of the resurrection. Let us celebrate with joy and worship our Blessed Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.

‘Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures … he was buried … he rose again the third day according to the scriptures’ (1 Corinthians 15: 3).
