Today is Good Friday! Some 2,000 years ago our Heavenly Father sent His one and only Son to bear the sins of all people on the cruel cross of Calvary. His life, His death and His resurrection transcends our circumstances or anything we can face in this world. It is the historical marker that lies at the center of all we believe.

Jesus IS our hope. our peace, our rest and our healing. The same hands that were pierced are the same hands that hold us up during difficult times. Today, reflect on Isaiah 53:5. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed. If you are burdened today by your circumstances and the cares of life, look to Jesus the One who died and arose on the third day. He is our eternal hope now and forevermore. Happy Easter to you and your family from The Other 6 Days.
