Good Friday & Giving


As I prepare my Easter Sunday message today, on Good Friday, the magnitude of God giving His only begotten son weighs heavy on my heart and boggles my mind.  “Only begotten.”  God’s generosity was at the highest possible level to pay for my sin.  That is amazing!  And undeserved.  Thank you, Lord, for the cross of Jesus.  It should have been mine.  Today is a good day, indeed, because Jesus took my sin and shame…and my place.  There is no better day and there is no greater gift.

I don’t know for sure, but I suspect that the gift-giving aspect of Good Friday has prompted a gift of three great ebooks by Francis Chan:
Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God (This has become a well-loved and very popular book.)
Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit (One of my personal favorites.)
Erasing Hell: What God Said about Eternity, and the Things We’ve Made Up (Very timely; this doctrine is being debated in evangelical circles right now.)

Remember, these deals are usually for a limited time.  If you use an Amazon Kindle or Kindle App, just click on the link, login, and follow the downloading instructions.  If you don’t have a Kindle e-reader, check out the free Kindle apps (what I use) available from Amazon here.

Happy Easter, but Good Friday too!
