GOOD FRIDAY

 “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want.”

“Early in the morning, all the chief priests and the elders of the people came to the decision to put Jesus to death.  They bound Him and led Him away…” (Matt. 27:1)

“He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.”

“After they had mocked Him, they took off the robe…and led Him away to crucify Him.” (Matt. 27:31)

“He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake”

“When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified Him, along with the criminals – one on His right and one on His left.” (Luke 23:33)

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me”

“It was the third hour [9 am] when they crucified Him” (Mark 15:25)

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies”

“The people stood watching…the rulers even sneered at Him…the soldiers mocked Him” (Luke 23:35,36)

“You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows.”

“It was now the sixth hour [12 noon] and darkness came over the whole land” (Mark 15:33)

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life”

“At the ninth hour [3 pm] Jesus cried out in a loud voice…” (Matt. 27:46) “Jesus called out in a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit’.  When He had said this He breathed His last” (Luke 23:46)

“And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever”

Today the Good Shepherd gave His life for you.  Throughout the day allow your thoughts to turn to Him and thank Him for enduring the shame and the pain on your behalf.  Today He demonstrated His love for you.  Today He proved Himself the Good Shepherd.
