Sometimes in life we just need to step back, and take a minute. Take some time to think about how lucky we are. All of you reading this post are extremely lucky, wherever you are in the world.

Good Friday, also called Holy Friday or Black Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday. Christians all around the world recognize it as the day Jesus was crucified. If you want to find out more about the crucifixion process click here.
Going back some time, Jesus had actually warned his disciples of what was going too happen on Good Friday. As a result of this, we can learn a lot about what happened on Good Friday from this verse in Matthew.
From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.
Many Christian churches all around the world celebrate Good Friday with a reflexive service, usually in the evening, in which the death of Christ is remembered with hymns, prayers, a message or talk centered around how Jesus suffered for our sake, and observance of the Lord’s Supper. The video below takes you through the events of Jesus last day on Earth, before being crucified. (If you have problems viewing the video, click here)
I’d firstly like to apologise about the timing of this post, we had a slight miscommunication error.
In the 15th century Leonardo Da Vinci painted a picture of the last supper. Today is Maundy Thursday and is the reminder of Jesus`s last supper, washing of his disciples feet and finally being betrayed by Judas. Jesus knew full well throughout the day what was going to happen to him throughout the next day.
This has been a fairly short post but look forward to tomorrows post all about Good Friday.

This week, remember that God is always with you and will NEVER leave you. Now, I am not just saying this because I have to, I am saying it because it is true. I had days when I think that God has left me and doesn’t care , but then I take out my Bible, or read some posts on RCG and that reminds me that God is always there for me.
We hope you like the quote and visit their website to find more quotes like it. Have a great week and love the Lord, because he loves you.
