For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
The darkest day in the world has also become the most triumphant day for humanity. Jesus becoming the sacrifice for our sins. The Lamb that was slain by the world. Jesus never knew sin but was killed for our sins. This moment will change the world forever, and will give us life for eternity.
The evil that was demonstrated is incomprehensible from his own disciple Judas betrayal, to the rejection from his own Jewish people, and the brutal beating and murder carried out by the Romans.
(Luke 22:48) “But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?”
Judas sold The Son of God for 10 pieces of silver, this deceitful act will start the beginning of Jesus crucifixion. Judas decided he loved money more than God. He later would regret his actions, but it was too late, the consequences are irreversible.
(Matthew 27:22) “”What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called the Messiah?” Pilate asked. They all answered, “Crucify him!”
Jesus was sinless and he never committed a crime, but the Jewish people rejected him and demanded he be crucified. Jesus came not only to save us from our sins but to also teach the true doctrine of God. The high priests have become corrupted and followed there own traditions rather the true ways of our Lord.
(John 19:30) “When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”
“It is Finished” declared the Lord on the Cross. Nobody probably understood what he meant at the time, but he fulfilled all the prophecies of the coming Messiah and most importantly he saves us all from our sins.
This Good Friday let’s not forget to give thanks and remember the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us all. By his blood we are redeemed, By his Stripes we are healed, in Jesus name Amen
