Good Friday

Has someone ever told you that they’d die for you? It must’ve felt heartwarming to hear, but 9 times out of 10 that person was exaggerating. From the beginning of time mankind has proven to be selfish, the way we get through our day is usually based on our self-centered goals and aspirations. It’s crazy to think about someone caring about you so much that they’d actually die for you. Do you want to know something more crazy? Someone actually has died for you, He died for you, me, and all of mankind. Today is the anniversary of His death.

The prophet Isaiah spoke on Jesus’ death on Good Friday, and the cause behind it. Isaiah 53:5 “But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.” Jesus is the embodiment of unselfishness, He lived for the whole purpose of freeing mankind from the bondage of sin and to fulfill prophecies just like Isaiah’s, and this is why we celebrate Good Friday, to acknowledge and honor the sacrifice Jesus bestowed to each and every single one of us.

What Jesus did on this day saved us for eternity. We know from the moment Adam and Eve disobeyed God, sin was brought into the world and everything that came into the world after this moment was born with sinful nature. Psalm 51:5 “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” God couldn’t bear to see His special work, His prized creation, to be kept captive by evil any longer, so He sent His one and only son, Jesus. The scriptures say in John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” God has never stopped loving us, from the moment sin entered the world, to the very moment you are reading this blog, His love for you and all of His children has remained the same. A testament to that overwhelming, unconditional love God has for us is giving up His only son, so we could be saved from evil and delivered into eternal paradise.

There’s a reason why this Friday out of all Fridays is called Good Friday. This Friday our storyline was changed. Our outcome was forever altered. On this friday we can live peacefully knowing that if you’ve accepted Christ as your Lord and personal Savior, you will spend everlasting life in Heaven. The death of an innocent man turned out good for the history of all mankind. Jesus didn’t have to do what He did, for He is still God and could do whatever He pleased. He could’ve tore Himself off that Cross, but He didn’t. Jesus didn’t come to do what He wanted, He came to do what God wanted. We ought to treat this day with respect and gratitude for the love Jesus showed to us on this day. Jesus gave up His spirit as he bore all sin (past present and future) and died with it. We know what’s coming Sunday, but without Good Friday there wouldn’t be an Easter Sunday. We’d still be condemned, but now because of Jesus’ love and sacrifice we have a life that will never die. A life that will be spent in happiness with our Father. Take the time to thank Jesus today, the least you can do is say thank you for the good act He did on this Good Friday.
