A Bad Day With A “Good” Result


Posted By on April 19, 2019

A Bad Day With A “Good” Result “…He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.” John 19:30, NKJV. It was a bad day for Jesus, humanly speaking, and a “Good” day for mankind. So we refer to it as “Good Friday”. It is the Friday before Resurrection Sunday; the day we refer to as Easter. We cannot even begin to imagine how bad the day was for Jesus.

Don’t Quit Now “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14, NKJV I’ve heard coaches say of an athlete, “He has a lot of potential”. I’ve also heard coaches say of an athlete, “He’s just not playing up to his potential”. In our scripture for today, Paul says that he has not reached his potential as a Christian but he is pressing on trying to reach the mark. He calls his...
