Let’s say – You have an appointment with the doctor. You’re feeling fine, no symptoms, just a checkup. The doctor comes in with the lab reports and says you are going to need surgery, right away.
What do you think? Do you just sign on the dotted line and ask where those drafty blue gowns are? NOOOO! You ask to see the result of the tests, the x-rays, the blood tests…show me the chart that says I have a problem.
Everyone in this room tonight is at that appointment. All of you have the problem. It’s called sin. No matter what tests you have done – it’s ALL going to come back positive.
And there is only one cure – you need surgery. That sin that is part of your life needs to be removed, and the only way it can be removed: JESUS CHRIST.
Don’t be the patient and just stare at the lab results and toss them away…Don’t be like those at the cross and just be like the crowd that walks away. You want to be able to call this day good?
You want to have victory in your life? Trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior, have him forgive your sins and give you new life. There is only ONE WAY. Pray in your heart to Jesus and you will be able to see what many already see…how good, how oh so good – Good Friday is.
