Good Friday: Why Are You Afraid?
In Matthew 27:32-50, the reality of the cross is that Jesus really *died." His death disheartened the disciples, but it brought a new reality - HOPE. And yet, in those dark moments of the cross, God was dealing with sin, death, and hopelessness. Jesus asked His disciples during His ministry, "Why are you afraid?" From the cross, He declared, "It is finished." Death defeated. Sin vanquished. Fear no more.
