Our house church family decided to have our worship on Good Friday last week instead of on Sunday so that people could enjoy Sunday with their families. I liked their decision.
Everyone was invited to our house.
We read from scripture.
Everyone was involved. Especially the kids. Just like the real Passover meal. I loved that.
For years my girlfriend has said she would love to be a Jewish Christian. She loves the Jewish traditions and what they mean. She, as always, did a great job of sharing God's word with everyone. I was talking later that night to Garrett about how she is the best bible teacher I've ever known. He looked me in the eyes and said, "Yes, she is." High praise from a 16 year old. I love how she uses her gifts for the Lord. When she does it brings her and everyone around her great joy. God made her a teacher. She teaches.
Friday night my girlfriend did what God made her to do. She humbly taught from His word. And as we worshipped and celebrated as God's family we were all, for a two hour period, Jewish Christians. And it was the most meaningful thing we could have done on sexta-feira santa.
