Good Friday is a Prep - Witness Day

by Sindhu George

We are strong when in the company of our Christian friends but are we just as strong and verbal in our belief when with unbelievers, even scoffers? Do we adhere to our moral convictions no matter what company we are in?

Many opportunities come our way in life, how we respond shows what we truly love and look for in life.

If you like many of us have backed down from the test, remember that Jesus knew you would. He prays for you and offers you another chance.

He prayed for Peter and the disciples.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO JESUS CHRIST OUR GOD:
At that point, all the disciples deserted Him and fled. Matthew 26:56

It was in the garden of Gethsemane where Jesus was with His disciples, praying. The crowd arrived carrying swords and clubs, determined to take Him to the trial that would lead to His death by crucifixion. Jesus willingly made the choice to go to the cross so that we could live with the expectation of glorious eternal life with God.

Though Jesus had tried to prepare them for the events He knew were to come, the disciples were not up to the test. The crowd seized Jesus and the disciples deserted Him and fled. The boasts made in the past proved to be empty.

Matthew 26:33
Peter declared, “Even if everyone else deserts you, I never will.”

No one stayed to share His suffering.

Aren’t we often like those early disciples? When new in our belief, we are bold in proclaiming our allegiance to Jesus Christ. We are determined to follow wherever He leads. Later, how many times, like those young men, do we turn and run when the going gets tough? How strong is your faith? Will you stand up to persecution? Claims of devotion to Christ are only meaningful if they stand through testing.

Luke 22:31,32
Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to have all of you, to sift you like wheat. But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen and build up your brothers.

The time is approaching when Christians will be asked to stand up for their belief. In the next test, remember what God has said.

Hebrews 13:5,6
I will never fail you.
I will never forsake you.

That is why we can say with confidence, The Lord is my helper, so I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?

An Overview of the Holy Week
Holy Week is the pinnacle of Great Lent. At no other time of the year will religious thought and practice be at such a high peak as during this sacred week, and no other family feast or festival should out rank that of Easter.
