Good Friday…

This is a day for tears, for mourning. But also for hope and for deep gratitude. 

Though everything Jesus went through was incredibly painful and horrible, he did so to heal the human soul. 

The prophet Isaiah tells us:

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭53:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

By His wounds we are healed. We are healed – brought from our brokenness to wholeness. Made right with God. The red in our ledger wiped out by the sacrifice of Jesus. The death we had earned made over into new life. 

It is a day for tears, but some of them ought to be shed in gratitude, in awe, in reverence. Because he did that for you. He did that for me. 

This Good Friday, may you know how very good it is to be forgiven.
