Today is Good Friday, when Christians around the world celebrate Jesus’ death on the cross. It may sound crazy to celebrate a death, but this death was the beginning of something incredible! After living a perfect life for 33 years, Jesus the son of God, was put to death on a cross, even though he had done nothing wrong. On the cross God poured out his wrath on Jesus for every sin every one in the world has ever committed. Crucifixion was already a cruel way to die but can you imagine what it must’ve been like with that added on top of it?
Why did Jesus go through this? Because he loves us and wants us to spend eternity with him, and this was the ONLY way it could happen! Now by accepting his death of the cross we can live with him forever! But Jesus’ death isn’t the end of the story, Sunday is coming!
Day 88: Thank you for the cross, what you did there, and what it accomplished for us!
