I want to wish everyone a blessed Good Friday!
It is hard for me to actually say have a happy day, because I am torn in two ways on this...
Yes, I am happy that God loved us so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins. Without Him, we would have no chance of making it into heaven.
But at the same time, I realize that it is because of my own sins that Jesus had to die on the cross. For God will not tolerate sin.
And The Sins of the World Atoned For
The possibility is there that all sins can be forgiven. But it can only happen if you repent of your sins and put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone for your Salvation. He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Jesus was crucified as a man without sin. He is the Son of God and His love knows no bounds.
As we remember the death of Jesus today, put away your sins once and for all. Repent of them and begin life anew. When you put on the Lord Jesus you will be given a new attitude and a new heart.
Are you still living in your sins?
Don't make a mockery of Jesus dying on the cross.
To God be the glory! Praise His Name above all names and turn from your evil ways.
Reach out to the lost and tell people about the wonderful love of our Savior. But don't forget to tell people why He died. Let them see that it was their sins (as well as our own sins) that He died for us. Use the Law of God to expose sin so that no one will be without excuse and say they did not know they were sinning. Then share the great love of Jesus.
It's easy and very rewarding to reach out to the lost. The people you talk to will not be offended and if they are, it is not you they are mad at, it is God.
So, be faithful in serving Him. Be obedient to His Word and follow Him all the rest of your days!
