Today, on this Good Friday, we remember Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice on our behalf…
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. – John 3:16-17
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:12-13
With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last. The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!” – Mark 15:37-39
It is only through Christ’s death on the cross (the crimson blood that washes white as snow) that we can find forgiveness for our sins and salvation for our eternity. Praise God that He loved us so deeply He not only called us His friends, but His children and co-heirs with Christ.
