Good Friday

I am going to my brother’s house where we will eat boiled seafood. We will probably be there for hours. It is always good to be with my brother and his wife. My family has always gotten together for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Something that my mother and her 2 sisters learn from my grandmother and her family. There are many reasons why this happened. The most likely one is to keep our family connected. Today many families live across the country or the globe. And it isn’t easy to stay in touch. I have cousins that live in the same city I haven’t talk to in a long time. It is my fault for not reaching out to them more. There are no more of my mother’s generation living. Which makes us the older generation. When we get together, I wish that older generation was here enjoying seafood and jokes. I know that they are looking down on us and watching what we do. My younger brother Bill joined them last July. I know he was glad to see mom and dad. Good Friday is all about taking care of family. Until God had a sacrifice to pay for the sins of man, man couldn’t enter into heaven. God needed a perfect sacrifice without spots or blemishes. And the only man found to be perfect for the sacrifice was Jesus. The pain and suffering He did on this day was for one reason only, to allow man to enter into the kingdom of God. When Jesus died and rose from the dead, it is said that He lead captivity captive. He freed all the people waiting for His arrival in hades. He stormed the gate of hell and took the keys of death and hell away from the devil. And led the saints into heaven. We have a lot to be thankful for. Jesus did this over 2000 years ago. And He still reigns and rules from the right hand of God.
