The Greatest Day in History

Sunday April 1, 2018

Pastor Sydney talked about how his children asked him why Good Friday is called Good Friday if Jesus was put onto the cross? He mentioned that it is called Good Friday because Jesus had given everything for us. “Because, I should have been on the cross”. Pastor Sydney read Jeremiah 17:5 and 1Corinthians 13. Pastor Sydney mentioned the greatest of the three (faith, love, and hope) is love. God is the light of heaven. Love will remain. Pastor Sydney talked about the story of Adam and Eve. Condemnation was among them when God came to the garden. Pastor Sydney compared Adam and Eve to a container, the gasoline represented the sin, and the fire represented God. The gasoline and fire cannot sustain together. Just like what happens when we go to the Lord, we cannot bare the  environment. Jesus could have a relationship with God because, He wasn’t full of gasoline. Take the gasoline out of the container and place oil instead. Set it in the fire, the oil burns instead with being the light. Pastor Sydney referenced John 3:16, God sent His only son. He read out of 2 Corinthians 5:21 and mentioned about going out on dates with the Lord. God had created Adam and Eve because He wanted that relationship.  He read out of Matthew 27:50 and Hebrews 2:91 Corinthians 15, not everyone will die. Colossians 1:18, He was made sin. Jesus died spiritually. Revelation 1:18 and Acts 2:14, righteousness and justice had to be accomplished through Jesus Christ. Acts 13:30, His Spirit bears witness within us. The gasoline had to be gotten rid of out of the container. It had to be dealt with, so that he could have a relationship with mankind!
