I know I am late on this post. I put some thought into just over a week ago, but Charles was here, and we were busy. I will post more on that later.
One of the things we did was go to church services on Resurrection Sunday Why do we accept calling it Easter in English? It is named after a fertility goddess.I posted before about Good Friday but I thought of another analogy.
Charles was relating to me how things have changed with banking in Kenya. Because of check (or cheque) fraud the banks will not allow any stray marks on a check, even if they are countersigned. But he also was happy to say that if you deposit a check, the money shows up 3 days later, it used to take weeks.
That is what I was thinking about on Good Friday. Jesus, by living His perfect life, wrote the check to pay all your debt. On Friday, on the cross, He deposited the check into your account, and on Sunday morning, the check cleared.
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:55-58 NKJV
