It’s like Christmas but with more blood… Hey everyone remember that today is the best Friday ever. It’s the day Jesus (our Savior, our Redeemer) took the brunt of ALL of our sin and punishment. He chose to be slaughtered and mangled. He chose to give His life for us that we might believe in Him and be saved. He saw that we were all headed for destruction, that we would all wind up in the lake of fire (for eternity).. No sacrifice of any amount of animals would pay for the limitless amount of sins we would have tallied up. He gave us grace when we didn’t deserve it (in my case everyday). He chose, He came, He conquered. He took on the form of a human being!
The Creator of ALL things came to earth as one of US to show us an example of the most extreme form of Love. He gave up all He had to be tempted in ever way that we are, defeating every temptation even unto death. He was ultimately nailed to a tree and left to bleed to death… But for what? What has Jesus ever done to deserve death on the cross? Apparently the people in those days wanted a savior that would take vengeance and rule with an iron fist, they wanted to make God in THIER own image. Instead He chose to show us how love will conquer all how we are all created in His image. It might cost you your life, but love is the answer. Love is the image of Jesus Christ/God the Father. I know I don’t always show love the way I should and quite frankly I have been known to have an attitude problem, among other issues.
(YOU MIGHT NOT BELEIVE ME) But I know this is real! I have been forever changed because of the love of this Man, this Christ. He might not be a white guy or a black guy or a Chinese guy. He could very well of been a small middle eastern brown guy that only weighed 90 lbs. But this man Jesus, has changed my entire life and for that, this weekend I am celebrating His death, His Burial and His Resurrection. THANK YOU JESUS!!!
