More on Good Friday

So I start to make the lemon pie fill mix the way I’ve always made it. Instead of ¼ cup water I add ¼ cup lemon juice, whisk in the egg yolks and two cups of hot water. Then I microwave it for two minutes and whisk again. Then I repeat. Hmmm. Four minutes and it should be thick and bubbly by now. It should be but it is not. Hmmm. Then I spy the lemon pie fill mix sitting in its package on the counter. I forgot to add the main ingredient! 

According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia, Good Friday (from the now obsolete senses pious, holy of the word “good”), also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians and it commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Based on the details of the Gospels, the Crucifixion of Jesus was most probably on a Friday (John 19:42). The estimated year of Good Friday is AD 33, by two different groups, and originally as AD 34 by Isaac Newton. Another accounting places the date as Friday, 3 April AD 33.

Lots of people call themselves Christian. They freely use the name ‘God’, presuming that qualifies them as a Christian believer. 

A Christian is a follower of Christ.

Philippians 2:9-11-  Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Dispute the year? Maybe. Dispute Christ, the main ingredient in the recipe? Sorry. Not so. Not if we want to be called by his name.

Prayer: Lord we believe. Help our unbelief (Mark 9:24). Amen
