Good Friday – A Day That Will Live In Infamy – But Rejoice for Eternity

alvation-jesus-nailed-it acts 2 14Jesus, born to the virgin Mary, performed miracles and wonders and signs openly for all to witness. Jesus cast out devils, cleansed lepers, restored sight to the blind, caused the deaf to hear, the lame to walk, the dumb to speak, and raised the dead. Everything that the Father did through him is common knowledge. Jesus, the only Son of God followed the deliberate and well-designed plan of His Father. He was betrayed by men who took the law into their own hands, and handed Him over to be crucified. He was nailed to a cross, where He died for our sins.

The death which Christ died upon the cross was a very painful end, although no fault was found in him. Jesus endured great trauma. He was beaten with rods; He was scourged and whipped; He had a crown of sharp thorns shoved into His scalp. All this was before He was nailed to the cross of Calvary.

His body was laid out upon the cross where He was attached to the tree upon which He would die by nails driven through His hands and feet. The cross was then picked up and stabbed into the earth where Jesus hung in extreme agony until He said ”It is finished”, and He then died. He was wounded, beaten, bruised and endured great sorrow for you and I that we might have salvation by the blood that He shed upon that tree, and that salvation we would have it freely.

God freed him from the agony of death, and He was resurrected after 3 days after the crucifixion because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. God raised him from the dead.  God untied the death ropes and Christ our Lord was resurrected. Death was no match for him. Jesus overcame death and the grave in history’s greatest act by God’s wonderful grace and wisdom.

Christ Jesus, the Son of the living God, by His death abolished the sting of death that we in turn might all experience eternal life. It is given freely to all who ask and believe upon His name. He paid our sins in full. His blood abolished death. His being nailed to the cross is the ultimate sacrifice and has bought us eternal and everlasting righteousness in the eyes of God. Jesus is the Lord, and the anointed Savior.

With our body, mind, spirit and soul we embrace the gift of salvation by Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary and we speak eternal life into existence by confessing our sins and accept the blood of Jesus as a sacrifice for our sins. In doing this we embrace God’s forgiveness – for the grace of Jesus has set everything right between our Creator and us.

  1. Thank you Jesus for taking the burden of my sins on yourself so that I may be healed. May Your pain and suffering not be in vain, but serve as a reminder of how great Your love truly is. Though grace is a free gift to us ~ it cost Your dearly and for this I am forever grateful.

  3. “The grace of Jesus has set everything right between our Creator and us.” So much truth packed into your last sentence! Praise God for His love that set the salvation plan in motion, eons ago. Praise Jesus for His unimaginable pain and suffering to pay our debt. And Praise the Holy Spirit, our “deposit” who guarantees our inheritance in heaven (Eph. 1:13-14). Thank you, Darrell for reminding us what Christ’s sacrifice has purchased for us.
