It's "Good Friday". It's interesting that we call this day "good" considering what we are remembering and reflecting upon. It probably has a lot to do with the fact we are living some 2,000 years separated from the event.
We can not even begin to imagine this day (Friday) without also keeping in our minds what is just around the corner.
Most of us hardly even reflect upon Or think about the Saturday in-between, because we can't help but know and anticipate what Sunday brings.
But what if we could experience today and tomorrow without the hope of the resurrection? What would that look like in the faith community? Would there even be a faith community? What would happen to our belief?
What would Jesus mean to us Today and tomorrow if we really knew nothing about the event on Sunday?
Would we still be a follower of Christ?
Does the way we answer this question speak to why we actually follow Jesus?
Do we follow Jesus because we believe his Way was/is the best possible way to live?
Do we ultimately follow Jesus because by doing so we believe we have heaven to gain?
What if Jesus offered us nothing after this life is over?
Would we still follow Jesus on "Saturday"?
