Today is Good Friday, commemorating Jesus’ death and burial. In His death, Christ Jesus faithfully finished the work God had for Him: to receive the sin and guilt of God’s children, to bear the punishment that they deserved. The punishment of our sin is death. But because of His death (and resurrection, which we will celebrate in two days!), we, by looking to Him, are freed from our bondage to sin and are welcomed back into the JOY of the Father as His own adopted children. By His own death, Jesus conquered death, once and for all, and gave us eternal life! Praise God for His grace and mercy!
Happy Holy Week,
