Six Hours One Friday: Living in the Power of the Cross by Max LucadoDoes life feel futile? Doesnt have to.
Do some of your failures seem fatal? They arent.
And your death. Does the grave appear to be the final stop? According to Christ, your death is just the start of the something great.
There is a truth greater than all the losses and sorrows of life. And it can be discovered in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In Six Hours One Friday, Max Lucado delves into the meaning of Jesus last hours on the cross. Through his death, your life has purpose and meaning. You are forgiven and loved by a Savior who died for you. And an empty tomb proclaims that death does not have the final word.
Peace where there should be pain. Confidence in the midst of crisis. Hope defying despair. Does death have the last word? I can see Jesus wink as he gives the answer, Not on your life.
Good Friday & Happy Easter!

This is from my devotional from today…. Not once did Christ use his supernatural powers for personal comfort. With a word He could have transformed the hard earth into a soft bed…boomeranged the spit of His accusers back into their faces…and paralyzed the hand of the soldiers who braided the thorns. Instead, God canceled the record that contained the charges against us…by nailing it to the cross Col.
By Max Lucado. Max Lucado explains that eternal life is offered to all because of what was accomplished during six hours on the first Good Friday. A soldier stood upon a rocky hill in Judea, fulfilling his duty that day as he had hundreds of other times. He was no stranger to finality. But this crucifixion plagued him.
