This is a special Faith Friday because today is GOOD FRIDAY.
Have you ever wondered why we call today Good Friday?
Jesus was flogged and crucified so it wasn’t a good day for Him. But it was a wonderful day for humanity.
Without Good Friday none of us would have a chance to go to Heaven.
No one – be they Pope, Pastor or rock star could go to Heaven without Good Friday.
When Jesus died on the cross all of our sins were placed on His shoulders.
Have you ever thought about the amount of sin He had to bear?
We live in a wicked, fallen world full of sin and Jesus had to take on all of that.
Just my sins alone would have been enough to make Him cringe.
But this is the good part.
Because Jesus took my place on the cross I can now be forgiven for all my sins. When God looks at me He remembers that Jesus died for me. I am free.
It’s amazing and wonderful and very Good.
But the good news doesn’t stop there.
SUNDAY IS COMING!
When Jesus walked out of the tomb on Sunday He sealed my fate. He proved that He was my savior and the holy Son of God.
Because of Friday and Sunday, you and I are able to have a relationship with God and spend eternity in Heaven.
All you have to do is ask Jesus to come into your life and be your savior. The cross is a gift but you have to accept that gift or it won’t do you any good.
Claim Good Friday as your own and then you can truly celebrate Easter.
Happy Easter to everyone!
