It Is Good Friday

Filed under Christian

Today, like every day of the year, we sit in the presence of Jesus Christ who was fully made to be God in the flesh of man. The triune God, God made in the flesh. In the person of Jesus The Christ
This Jesus Christ, my personal savior demonstrated that he loved God with all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his strength, and with his whole mind.

This Jesus Christ, loved with a love that is hard to understand.
Jesus Christ loved the human race so much that he gave his life as an offering of payment for sin. You sinned? Christ has already paid for it. That’s how much he loves us.
Sin will never ever be an issue for a growing Christian.
Because the Savior the great “I AM” knew the penalty of sin, and knew that all people would sin. That Christians would continue to sin. So he offered himself as a propitiation offering. On the Cross, to fulfill prophesy

Today why not take a few moments and ask yourself if you are not a Christian, to let God into your heart and accept the great sacrifice Jesus Christ gave.

It can be a simple prayer, or a conversation. In the book of Acts, it is very clear.
That faith alone is the path to eternal salvation.
Acts 16:31: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved.”

“Dear God I know I’m a sinner, I know I am not where I want to be, and I want your forgiveness! I believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for my sins.
Please cleanse me from all sin, shame, and guilt, come into my life Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I ask this in your name Jesus. Amen!”

Recognize that you are a person of sin, with no way to access God the Father except through the work of Jesus Christ. Just ask God for cleansing of your sin, and that Jesus would come into your heart to save you.

Remember the story of the two thieves crucified with Jesus? One absolutely refused to seek what Jesus offered; the other thief did, and was told “today you will be with me in paradise” Buddy Gray pastor of Hunter Street Baptist Church in Birmingham recently said this.

“This really is justification by faith alone. Notice there was no baptism, no communion, no confession, no last rites, no church membership, no good works, no praying a prayer, no walking an aisle. This man trusts in Christ alone…. All he can do is trust in the work of Jesus Christ, and Jesus says that is all that it takes.”

Ephesians 2:8-10: “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.”
Today while we acknowledge the gift we were given by Jesus, through his death on the cross, we may mourn.
Yet the family of God knows this was a penalty that had to be paid, so that we can know we will have the gift of eternal life.Here is enough reason to call this Friday Good.
