It is my hope that while people are enjoying this day off from work and school that they will stop to consider exactly what happened on this day. Today is Good Friday. It is the day that Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins. Jesus was sinless, yet He bore all of our sins on the cross. He endured so much pain and suffering as He was beaten, battered, and bruised. He was mocked and humiliated. He was crucified and hung on the old rugged cross where He died for you and for me.
Yes, it is Friday …
“It is finished,” Jesus said, and the whole world turned dark as Jesus breathed His last breath. Ah, but Sunday is coming!
Can you imagine having a love so deep, so strong, so unconditional to DIE such a cruel death for sins that you did not commit? That’s how much Jesus loves us. He bore it all so that we may have eternal life if we only believe in Him and ask Him into our hearts.
Have you honestly and truly accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior? Have you confessed that He is Lord of your life and allowed Him to come into your heart?
If you haven’t … please do so today. Please … I beg you. I want you to know Jesus and have the gift of eternal life also.
This is not the end. Yes, Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday.
But Sunday is coming!
