Good Friday: Jesus wants you no matter how much you’ve screwed up

By Samuel Lam

Today is Good Friday and we remember the death of Jesus Christ. But also, it’s a celebration because it is Jesus fulfilling His promise to give us eternal life. It’s a good day. That’s why we call it Good Friday.

One of my favorite parts of the Good Friday story actually is Jesus’ conversation with two criminals that hung with Him on the cross. It’s a simple story, but a powerful one that still sticks with me to this day.

While onlookers hurled insults at Jesus, mocking Him for proclaiming to be the Messiah, one of the criminals spoke to Jesus.

One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”

But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

— Luke 23:39-43 (NIV)

How Michael Jordan will always remind me about Easter Sunday

By Samuel Lam

Michael Jordan and Jesus are forever linked together for me.

With Easter approaching in two weeks, I want to share a story of an Easter Sunday I celebrated almost 10 years ago.

When I was a freshman in college, I started attending this start-up church in the area. It was a great community of people who loved Jesus and weren’t afraid to be different. In fact, the pastor embodied the identity of the church perfectly. Pastor Elton Lin wasn’t the kind of guy that felt that structure had to dictate our faith. If we felt like dancing, then dance. If we wanted to express our love of Jesus through art, then go draw. If you felt like hugging one another, then hug. It was a big change for me because I grew up believing and understanding that church had to be structured and controlled at all times.

(After a few years, I returned back with the church group in my final year living in the Bay Area and it rekindled my love of Jesus and the group that taught me how to love the world. That was church.)
