Hebrews 12:2
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Sunday we are celebrating the most remarkable GIFT we have ever received as Christians. That GIFT was not earned. That GIFT was simply ….just that…. a GIFT.  Today is GOOD FRIDAY….it is a GOOD FRIDAY for us, but was a bad Friday for Jesus. 
 
We just recently concluded a series at Church of the Highlands called “How to Live Through a Bad Day.” Pastor Chris Hodges shared seven principles that provide insight on how we can endure the tough days we face. I thought those points were worth sharing this week as we embark upon this Easter weekend.
  
The next time you experience a tough day…..reflect on these, and recognize that the only way we can make it through our bad day, is because He made it through His bad day at Calvary. When we choose to FIX our eyes on Jesus and meditate on His work at the CROSS, we cannot resist the supernatural HOPE and PEACE that chases us down. 
 
 **HOW TO LIVE THROUGH A BAD DAY**
 
FORGIVE everyone who’s trying to ruin your life.
 
HELP OTHERS who are experiencing your same struggle.
 
Be sure to TAKE CARE for those closest to you.
 
Realize that until you get to heaven, there are some things you will
NEVER UNDERSTAND.
 
Be human enough to ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR NEED.
 
Be confident that there is a PURPOSE and an END.
  
Finally, SURRENDER your day to God, and LET IT GO.
 
 
**FRIENDS LET’S ALSO REMEMBER THE BENEFITS OF THE CROSS**
 
 Cross 
 
HIS STRIPES were for our HEALING.
 
HIS CROWN of THORNS gave us PEACE.
 
THE NAILS were for our FORGIVENESS and CLEANSING.
 
THE SPEAR was to RESTORE NEW LIFE IN US.
 
Now, to conclude….check out the following video and remember
WHO HE IS and that HE CHOSE US!
 
 
 
 
God bless you all this Easter…
 Easter Cross 
May we celebrate His Resurrection every single day!
