We remembered Good Friday, when the Lord gave up His Spirit and fulfilled His salvation mission for all who will believe in Him. This good Friday we witnessed ultimate humility when our Creator died in the hands of His creation. On this day we saw how He demonstrated His redemption plan for us humans. We also saw how grace was given to us undeserving, that though we are sinners, Jesus died for us. This good Friday we marveled at His victory, as He used the wooden cross to defeat the enemy.
So while others mourn on this day, forbidding their children to play, saying God died on Good Friday, remember that God, on a Good Friday, didn’t remain dead, instead went to hell, swung the gates open, got His keys back saying “Where, o death, is you victory? Where, o death, is your sting?” and resurrected 3 days after.
Remember that through His death, He ransomed the many, cleansed the dirty, and took back what’s His. Remember that one Good Friday, God gave up the life of His one and only Son, Jesus, so that whoever believes in Him will find life eternal. Remember that one Good Friday, God showed how He spells ultimate victory, in 4 letters – L-O-V-E.
That is our God.
This is His love.
One Good Friday.
