Good Friday

Your Reflections on the Cross

Good FridayHere are the things we heard from you last night after the Good Friday service.  Read them, remember and rejoice!

– Forgiveness means that I no longer have fear of death. I no longer have to try “harder” to get to heaven. God has forgiven me from my never ending struggle with sin.

– Forgiveness is all I have. I am nothing without my savior. He is my all in all! Praise be to God for His indescribable gift! Praying my children know the God I know.

– I am so amazed as I continue to reflect on Isaiah 53 that I read this morning. It pleased you Father to crush Your Son on my behalf. That blows my mind! And then to reflect more on this tonight in this service is awesome!

– My heart – selfish, prideful, needy envious, ungrateful. That I would seek ways to serve my husband more.

– I’m so grateful for what was done on the Cross for me. Thank you Lord for loving me even though I don’t deserve it.

– That I would put all my trust in my God during this time of transition to different schools.

– Thank you Lord for your unselfishness in that you sacrificed your Son for me and my sins.

– I am relieved that Christ has gone through what I was supposed to go through and I am now made clean.

– Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. Thanks be to God & Jesus for His shed blood on the cross for All my sin past, present, and future.

– The Lord’s sacrifice for my sins is unfathomable and glorious! I can never praise or thank Him enough for His sacrifice for me, a great sinner, saved by grace!

– Forgiveness is amazing. It’s hard to fathom but fills me with great joy.

– Joy for being forgiven. Gratitude for having my sins forgiven. Humbled.

– I’m so thankful for the grace I don’t deserve, for His patience with me and for His blessings. I’m also thankful at the sorrow He brings from sin that encourages true repentance.

– Forgiveness – in my place, condemned He stood. Great Night – my favorite Good Friday of them all.

– Humbled by His forgiveness… I desire this for my kids.

– For my “marriage” ministry that I would be faithful & worthy to God’s saving grace to my unsaved husband by obedience & trust in God, His Word, and the power of both.

– That God would further break my heart open when it comes to sacrificing for and loving my wife & children. That He would remove my pride which leads to anger often.

– To pray like Paul pray for the churches to depend on Christ more and more.

– Salvation for children

– We gospel believing parents would be patient, kind, gentle, and faithful toward our way word children. Looking at our response to their sins and loving them as we have been loved. Rom 5:8, 2tim 2:24-26, Rom 2:4

– Forgiveness – Christ eternal

– Thankful for God’s grace, for His faithfulness to pursue a sinner like me, for His loving kindness in offering the Son Christ Jesus as a sacrifice on my behalf.

– So so thankful that God through Jesus would show His grace to me. I ask that God would continue to sanctify me of my areas of unbelief particularly in lust and undisciplines.

– I pray for all the lost & hopeless people struggling with addictions & mental health issues. Also for the helpless children who are victims of child abuse.

– The cross is everything to me. The greatest miracle that ever happened to me is when God forgave all my sins thru Jesus Christ. I’m so undeserving of God’s grace yet he rescued me. Thank you Jesus!!! I offer all of me to you till I die I can’t wait to see you in heaven!!!

– That God will humble me around my sisters. And that I would be in the word more often.

– That Jesus Christ would save people with His grace like He lovingly saved me.

– Thank you Jesus for your love, your amazing love. I do not deserve it, but I do gladly receive it. Thank you for your sacrifice and the precious gift. I love you Jesus.

– Forgiveness is what I don’t deserve. It is the gift that God gave me, one that without Jesus was impossible. It’s something that I shouldn’t have been able to even know.

– His forgiveness symbolizes the ultimate and utmost salvation which humanity could ever receive. The suffering of eternal hell was counted by his undying love for a desolate human.

– Forgiveness undeserving and unwarranted grace from my Lord Jesus Christ. Cleansed white as snow, as perfect before God because of Christ’s sacrifice for me. Never having to experience eternal separation or hell (even though that’s what I deserve).

– Stability of love, humility and full heart not to build any kingdom but the kingdom of my Master Jesus.

– I am thankful as I think that my sin died with Christ on the cross. Also, with my sin goes the guilt of it – Oh, I am so thankful for this!

– My heart is overwhelmed by how great my sin is and how amazing God is. My unpayable unattainable debt has been paid, and I am righteous in Christ. I am humbled by the gift of His grace.

– Forgiveness: Easter, 3 years ago God grabbed my heart. I finally understood what grace is. Grace is forgiveness. Loving me regardless of my condition.

– love obey

– Faithfulness to His calling and a passion to know Him better daily. Freedom from worry about sin.

– Amazed that the forgiveness of God is all encompassing. While nothing escapes His notice not one of my sins is remembered by Him.

– Thank you for a wonderful service spoken in truth. Thank you Lord for forgiving me, I’m undeserving of your grace, but so thankful for what you did on the cross. Please help me live it out everyday to show my love for you.

– God love is amazing! I find it every day to be refreshing & humbling. That He would exchange His righteousness for my sin praise God for His love. To live is Christ to die is gain.

-Dear Lord Jesus, Once again I want to thank you for dying on the cross for me! I was so so lost! You delivered me out of the grip of Satan – and you sit my feet up on the Rock (the Lord Jesus Christ) upon yourself. I desperately need you and desire more of you in my life! I could never repay you for what you have done. So because of that I want to live my life sold out for you! To give until it hurts! I love you with my life.

– His forgiveness means my freedom. Amen!

– God views me as righteous even when I am at my worst because of the incredible sacrifice Christ made on the cross for me.

– It is great joy to know and understand forgiveness. Christ, perfect holy and blameless died for me an undeserving sinner. He paid my debt and not only that, but He also gave me righteousness.

– Christ has blessed me so much with an awesome family and shutters over my head and salvation in my life. I would like you to pray that I would slay lust in heart.
