Thank You Jesus that brutal Good Fridays lead to liberating Resurrection Sundays! Only from a Godly perspective of what was to come could a blood soaked cross grossly attached to someone with a pummeled unrecognizable face be seen as a "Good Friday". And that's the Gospel (which means Good News)... that by grace through faith Jesus took our sin, suffering, & scrutiny upon Himself and by the scourging on the cross He exchanged it all for our salvation. His marrow removed my sorrow! The old adage that blood is life has never been more true! As one of my T-shirts proclaims, "A blood donor saved my life." That Blood Donor was Jesus... and the date of His blood donation is what we refer to as Good Friday! THANK YOU JESUS for dying on the cross so that we may have eternal life by grace through faith!!
"For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast."
- Ephesians 2:8-9
