But God demonstrates His love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Christians all over the world will be gathering this Friday for services. Friday was the day that Jesus died upon the cross.

It was the day that His disciples saw their Lord and Messiah whipped, beaten and nailed to a tree.

It was the day Mary saw her “little boy” brutalized and killed.

It was the day God the Father saw His own dear Son tortured, mocked, spit upon, and crucified.

It was the day that sinful, darkened man extinguished the sinless light of the world.

We call that day… GOOD FRIDAY.


How could what happened that Friday possibly be called good? Should we not rename it Bad Friday… or Sad Friday? NO!!! It was good, very good for many reasons. Let me mention three:

1. Good Friday demonstrates the great love of God. Often times we allow circumstances to influence our understanding of God’s love. We wrongly develop “Daisy Theology” – He loves me, He loves me not. If things are going well for us, He must love me; if they are going poorly, He must love me not. Listen, the cross is outside of your particular circumstances. It stands as a PERMANENT REMINDER to you and me that, regardless of our circumstances, God truly does love us… so much so that He would even allow His Son to die a brutal, excruciating, humiliating death for us. Wow!

2. Good Friday opens the door to the great throne of God. When Jesus died on the cross, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The thick veil that separated God from the people was ripped apart. No longer is there separation. No longer is there any need for further sacrifices upon the mercy seat. You and I can come boldly into the very presence and throne room of the King of Glory and sit in His lap!! We have full and open access to the Father because of what the Son did that Friday.

3. Good Friday paves the way for Easter Sunday. There could be no Easter glory without Good Friday. Jesus said, “Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory” (Luke 24:26). What glory, what power, what joy and hope we all have because of the cross and the resurrection. No matter what you and I may be facing today, the resurrection proves to us that God is able!! He can take the worst life can bring and turn it around to be the greatest blessing on earth.

2000 years ago, that Friday was painful beyond words. Yet, it ended up being the most significant single day in history. Without that Friday, you and I are irretrievably destined for hell. But with it (and with the resurrection), we can be blessed and booked and bound for glory to live forever with the One who willingly died for us.

No wonder they call it GOOD FRIDAY!


My friend, if you have not yet received Christ into your heart and been born again, I urge you to do it today. As I told a friend just this week, the way you enter into a personal relationship with Jesus is not easy, yet it is simple: you give all you know of you to all you know of Jesus. You sell out to Him, the God who loves you and died for you.

Make the greatest transaction in the world… trade your sinful life for His sinless, abundant, eternal life. You will be so glad you did!

About Dr. Jeff Schreve

Jeff's life has been radically changed by Jesus Christ.
Growing up in a church-going home, Jeff learned a lot about God, but he did not know God. He believed in Jesus in the same way he believed in George Washington: he knew Jesus was real, but had not personally met Him. All this changed one night after a Young Life meeting when he was alone in his bedroom. There Jeff saw his need for Christ and His forgiveness and surrendered his life to Jesus.

As a student at the University of Texas, Jeff grew in his Christian life. He graduated with a degree in business and moved back home to Houston, Texas to start a career in business. There he met his future wife, Debbie, at a single's group meeting at Champion Forest Baptist Church. They were married in 1986 and have been blessed with a wonderful relationship and three awesome daughters and two beautiful grandchildren.

A New Direction
After spending 13 years as a chemical salesman, God called Dr. Schreve to preach. He left his secure position and moved his family to North Carolina to attend Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. It was a scary and difficult move to make ... but it was one of the best decisions they have ever made. One year later, God called them to serve on staff at Champion Forest Baptist Church. In 2000, he completed his Master of Divinity degree graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree in 2014 from Southeastern Seminary.

Jeff Schreve has been the senior Pastor of First Baptist Texarkana in 2003, a growing and exciting church with 4500+ members.
