Why is Good Friday, called "Good"Friday?
The very purpose of Christ's coming to earth in human form was to set for us an example as how to live a virtuous life.He took human form and led the life of an ordinary man, subjected to trails and temptations.He taught us to fight evil with prayer and love.He showed us the miracles of faith...but the most important message He brought was SALVATION. His death on the cross was not His defeat, but His victory....because, from then on, no believer would suffer as much as He did.
He rose from the dead and ascended to Heaven. His ascension was death's defeat, because the fear of death [which is death's power ] would no longer remain in the hearts of believers... for they now know death is their doorway to eternity, where Jesus reigns.
The saving message of Christ has to be delivered to all.
We hope you join us in this venture and
forward this message to others.
NAILS THAT SET ME FREE
As I kneel down to pray, my heart seems far away-
lost and lonely, somewhere in the passions of this world.
It all seemed great at first and I thought I was happy.
But as days passed, I realized that it all
was just for the moment.
I went out in search of that peace, that joy, that
everlasting love that would set me free.
Over the mountains and across the seas-
I screamed out loud... "LORD, SET ME FREE!"
My sins were too many to count,
I knew I would be punished.
I was filled with guilt and shame.
I couldn't pray.
Then, I saw an angel who led me to the cross
Jesus was tied to, tired and lonely.
Placing in my hands a hammer and three nails,
he looked into my eyes and said,
"I can't do that!!! How can I???"
"It will not hurt him as much as your sins did. I promise"
said the angel with tears in his eyes.
I took the nails and hammered them into the flesh of Christ.
At each blow, He cried out in pain as the blood spurted out.
He tried to bear in silence, but the pain was too much to conceal.
I crowned Him with thorns and pierced His heart.
In the end he said,"Forgive her Lord"...and died.
As His dead body was lowered from The Cross and placed on the lap of His Mother,
She cried out in agony hugging Her beloved Son's lifeless body.
I picked up the blood stained nails
and holding them close to my heart
"I'm sorry Jesus. I promise never to sin again."
"Go now. You have been set free"...said the angel.
"He has paid the price for your sins."
"And what do I do now?"...I asked.
The angel smiled,"Bring the others here, and give them these....the nails that will set them free."
We invite you ...
to the foot of The Cross,where you will be freed from the burden of ALL your sins.
The verdict of punishment on you, will be taken up by Christ when you truly repent and accept Him into your life.
Your life will have a new direction and meaning making each moment count.
BREAK FREE from the monotonous life and let each day bring new rays of God's message and direction.

There will be the tough times too with trails and temptations but the Bible says,
1 Corinthians 10:13
"Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps His promise and He will not allow you to be tested, beyond your power to remain firm. At the time you are put to test, He will give you strength to endure it and also provide you with a way out."
"And now he can help those who are tempted, because he himself was tempted and suffered."

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but inherit eternal life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved."
