Yeshu Satsang falls on Good Friday this year, April 18th (the following one is May 23rd). We will be breaking a coconut to symbolize the broken body of Jesus on the cross. As the hard shell of the coconut is hammered we remember the nails that pierced the Lord’s hands and feet. As the coconut is cracked, it’s water spills out, reminding us of how the soldiers pierced the Lord’s side with a spear, and blood and water flowed out, confirming that he had died. The coconut’s pure, clean, white flesh symbolizes how Christ’s shed blood cleanses us from all sin.
There were two thieves on the cross on either side of Jesus. One mocked him and said “Save us and save yourself.” The other said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.” Jesus answered, “Today you will be with me in paradise.”
You can recognize a person whose life has been transformed by unconditional forgiveness and love and you want to be near them, to let some of their light fall on you. That these incredible gifts come to us through something as simple, lowly, and despised as “faith” is humbling. Fortunately we don’t need a lot of faith to believe. God can work wonders with a very small amount of faith, and at the last minute too. Nothing is ever too late for God.
