Christians From Around World Mark Good Friday In Jerusalem

Sunday, 16 Apr, 2017

They saw the empty tomb and they believed what he had promised: that God would raise him on the third day.

Christians made up more than 18 percent of the population of the holy land in 1948, before Israel was created, but now they number less than two percent.

If she really, really likes it, you may be telling it over and over for quite a while. For the past five years, we watch this re-enactment of Stations of the Cross.

How are we doing?

More than their own experience, they were instructed in the mysteries of the divine economy, God's saving plan - to know how "all the prophets bear witness" to him (see Luke 24:27,44).

It can be hard to see an emotional and realistic reenactment of the Stations of the Cross, which depict the torture and murder of Jesus Christ three days before he rose again this upcoming Easter, but it is an important message that those involved hope to bring to light.

Does that make us flawless?

"Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal and new life".

I Corinthians 10:13 reads: "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind". Don't let doubt, or fear, or pride, or sin, or anything else keep you from Him. You can also share some image on your Facebook or Snapchat application and make the others feel happy. Can we be the loving Heart of Jesus to others?

So back to the question, how are we doing? Can we be the ones who are the hands and feet; the eyes and voice of the Risen Jesus to our world?

This is the good news that the angel of the Lord brings not only to the women in the Gospel but also to all of us.

"So we must put and plant the cross in the centre of all that concerns us and identify with the grace we have received from God", he said.

I've often heard the church referred to as the sleeping giant. Even we have some phrases that can be used for sending the Easter SMS on the WhatsApp for your friends to convey your wishes on the occasion.

The church is not sleeping.

Kinnan said "As a church, anyone and everyone is welcome, it's one of the reasons why we go to the Civic Center".

The following day Christians mourn Jesus' crucifixion on Good Friday.

The first Sunrise Service in the history of Easter, was celebrated in Hernhut, Germany, in 1732.

Maybe this is because we are looking at who we were before the cocoon, not at what we are now in Christ.
