What does that Friday mean?
For the life blackened with failure, that Friday means forgiveness. ●
For the heart scarred with futility, that Friday means purpose. ♦
And for the soul looking into this side of the tunnel of death, that Friday means deliverance. ♥
Six hours, One Friday.
● “You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.” –Psalm 85:2
♦”Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” –Matthew 11:28, 29
♥”My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all ; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.”
–John 10:27, 28
The very purpose of Christ’s life on earth was to die – to redeem mankind, to forgive sinners and make a way for our debt to be paid. He who never sinned, became sin for us.
“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” – 2 Corinthians 5:21
Thank God for “Good Friday” for the day He gave His life a ransom for many!
