It was He who knew no sin. He gave His life so that we might have life and have it abundantly. Abundantly. The Creator of the heavens and the earth, the one to whom all principalities bow down. None can stand before. None can comprehend just how much He loves us. The ultimate symbol of His love. The Cross, that is. "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)
He paid the ultimate price. He died so that we could all spend eternity with Him in Heaven. How glorious the day to come will be! The day when we can look back on our lives and say we lived a life centered around Christ. There will be no more sadness or sorrow. Only joyfulness and peace will abound.
The love of God is perfect. It's truly perfect. There is no love even close to the vastness of His. Bask in the wonder! Embrace the comforting peace! For He alone is the One true living God! He sent Jesus to die an awful, excruciatingly painful death. And He did it all out of love.
On this day, many gathered around the cross and spat upon Jesus's face. They tore His clothes up, and cursed toward Him. Whip after whip, Jesus endured pain that none other has ever encountered before. "So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing his head, He gave up His spirit." (John 19:30)
But, this was most certainly not the end of the story! John chapter 20 talks about how Mary Magdalene found Jesus, and the tomb was empty. He is risen! He overcame the grave! Hallelujah! Thanks and glory to our Heavenly Father! Happy Easter/Good Friday to you all! God bless!
