So why is this Friday so good? It was because we were so bad.
This Friday is the day that Jesus died on the cross. And we are all responsible for his death. Why were we responsible? We weren’t even the ones that shouted “Crucify Him!” While we have never shouted this, or were around when he was alive, we have all sinned.
Since we have all sinned, that made it necessary for Jesus to die for all of our sins. The very act of our sinning has put us on equal ground with the Jews that wanted Jesus to die. Our sins is the very reason why Jesus was killed in the first place.
And that leads to the reason why this Friday is so good. With the sins that we have committed, we are all destined for Hell. Every one of us. But Jesus died in place of us. He bore every one of our sins. When he said “It is finished.”, he meant it. Death was conquered. Sin was conquered. Every person could now be saved through him. He stood in the gap with the cross, forming a bridge between God and man. With the death that he died, nothing can separate us from him. Nothing can separate us from God and nothing can separate us from Jesus. And that’s why this Friday is so good.
Muse: I didn’t want to interrupt, but that was wonderful.
Muse: I will be quiet now. If you need me, I’ll be in the other room.
Okay. I will now get ready for the day.
Today’s high is going to be 50 degrees and the silver lining is Jesus dying on the cross.
To those of you who are glad that Jesus died, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Muse: That’s not where the story ends. This Sunday will mark the conclusion, when he comes back to life…
