Jesus Sentenced to Be Crucified

1 Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. 2 The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe 3 and went up to him again and again, saying, “Hail, king of the Jews!” And they slapped him in the face.

20b But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
 

22 “He committed no sin,
    and no deceit was found in his mouth.”


23 When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. 24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 25 For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

Hello!

Today's post presents a GREAT Gospel song by the The Williams Brothers called A Mighty Good Friend.

Originally released in 1980 on the Brother's First Class Gospel LP and then again on CD in 1991 — it speaks of our Savior's love and care for us — and is skillfully performed, sung and recorded at their peak.

It's another "music-only" video but the lyrics are posted below so you can sing along (and I won't tell anyone if you push all the furniture back and dance around in yer socks to it).

: )

Please give it a spin and let God Bless you and speak to your heart through it!





A Mighty Good Friend - Lyrics

Jesus is my friend,
He's been a mighty good friend,
He's been a wonderful friend to me,

Jesus is my friend, (I tell you)
He's been a mighty good friend,
He's been a wonderful friend to me,

Oh yes! 
He's been a mighty good friend to me,

They tried my Lord and master,
With no one to defend,
Within the halls of Pilate,
He stood without a friend,

The world may turn against him
But He'll always be my friend,
Well I believe, (Oh yes I will)
I'll serve Him 'til the end,

I said,
He's been a mighty good friend to me,

When shadows moved in around me,
And there was nothing I could do,
The Lord saw my need,
Reached down and pulled me through,

When my friends who would stone me,
The Lord God never disowned me,
He's always by my side,
He's my life and my guide,

I tell ya,
He's been a mighty good friend to me,

Jesus is my friend,
He's been a mighty good friend, (I tell ya)
He's been a wonderful friend to me,

Jesus is my friend, (Glory Hallelujah)
He's been a mighty good friend,
He's been a wonderful friend to me,

Oh yes!
He's been a mighty good friend to me,
I tell ya,
He's been a mighty good friend to me,

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Jesus is LORD!

Seek Him!
