As I ponder this morning the deep goodness of God, I am reflecting on the love of God and I am moved. It is Good Friday. We call it good. For us it shows the love that Father has for us. That Christ would die in our place. Take the judgement for our sin. In no other way could the depth of God’s love be shown, then by the giving of Life. In a world that is hostile, angry, confused, God’s love shines to humanity. In the death of Christ the human spirit, is moved by magnitude of love shown as Jesus lays down his life for us. Please take a moment to reflect, meditate, pray through with thanksgiving these verses as I have done. The truth will lead you to the goodness of God on this Good Friday
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3.16
“It is rare indeed for anyone to die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God proves His love forus in this: While we were still sinners, Christ diedfor us. Therefore, since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from wrath through Him.” Romans 5.7-9
“But the LORD was pleased
To crush Him, putting Him to grief;
If He would render Himself as a guilt offering,
He will see His offspring,
He will prolong His days,
And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.” Isaiah 53.10
He has purchased by his love and blood our salvation.
Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Today is a day to be thankful, humbled, broken, and meek.
