There are many things in the world that compete for our attention. This competition may cause us to become distracted. Even when others are trying to talk to us, we may not be giving our full attention. We need to learn to overcome distractions and to truly listen.
On Good Friday, we remember the death of Jesus on the cross. The day may take on a somber tone as we reflect on His suffering and the confusion of His disciples. Living in the aftermath of the crucifixion of Jesus, His followers prepared His body for burial and began mourning His death. His followers may have become distracted and forgotten His words. Good Friday is not the end of the life of Jesus. We can all remember His words and look forward to what is to come with the celebration of Easter: Jesus is still alive! He rose from the dead to save us. We need to remember His words and actions, keep them in our hearts for all of eternity!
Pay attention to the words and actions of Jesus and keep them in your heart!
Thank You for the reminder of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. Forgive me through His sacrifice and help me to share Your glory through my life. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
