2 Corinthians 5:15 New King James Version (NKJV)
15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
John 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Today as we celebrate Good Friday, I am filled with so many emotions; love, joy, gratitude – excitement. I am excited about the significance of the next few days and what it means to me as a Christian. More than anything I am grateful to my Heavenly Father that He saw fit to send His son to die for me. I have been walking this Christian road a majority of my life and I have made mistakes more than I can count. I know I haven’t always done or said the right thing and did not always represent Christ the way I should have. But on today, I am so grateful that despite my constant failings – which He knew would happen, that’s why He died – He still loves me. He still died for me. On the day we remember his death, I choose to bury every mistake, every sin and shortcoming I have committed and will commit, along with Him. I see the next few days as rebirth for all Christians and a wonderful opportunity for those who have not accepted Him to do so. I was listening to “Beautiful Son” by Joann Rosario and it is a beautiful reminder of the purpose of Jesus’ death and resurrection. It really blessed me and I hope it blesses you as well.
If you haven’t accepted Jesus as your personal Savior, there is no better time than the present!
