Such Love for Us

Such Love for Us

Good Friday, Holy Friday, Long Friday – whatever you call the day Jesus was crucified – leaves me always in reverent awe. Somebody died for a wretch like me. Not just any death but crucifixion, brutal torture from start to finish. And all this was prophesied hundreds of years before it happened. God knew this had to be done, that much he loved us. That much he yearned for us to be made right with him again. Such love for us….

The Best Bargain of All

The Best Bargain of All

Sometimes we overlook things that we are familiar with. We are more excited about things that seem to be exotic. Like Christianity might feel boring to you if you’ve grown up with it. You look into mindfulness to look for peace and you forget that the prince of peace is Jesus himself. You forget that he gave his all that we could have all. That’s the best bargain of all. You are familiar with the generosity of our Master, Jesus Christ. Rich…

What Wondrous Love Is This

What a holy day Good Friday really is. Still it’s hard to understand what Jesus really did for us. The amount of suffering is beyond our imagination. Yet, he did it. Jesus died the most brutal death so we could be forgiven and made right with God. Such love. And, think, all we can do is to receive it and let it change us inside out. What wondrous love is this? He personally carried our sins in His body on…

Do Not Skip Good Friday

Do Not Skip Good Friday

Are you tempted to skip Good Friday and hop straight over to Easter? I hear you. I think it’d be great to pretend that all the cruel things on Good Friday did not happen. And, especially, denying our part in it, right? But that’s not how God planned out our salvation. It does involve blood, suffering, and dying. All for our sake. Our salvation was costly. We can’t forget that. We can’t skip Good Friday. Otherwise, our Easter joy would…

Thoughts on Good Friday

Thoughts on Good Friday

Good Friday is here. It reminds me of how blessed we are to have a God who did not spare expenses to reach us, to make us right with him. If you want to get a good grasp of the message of Good Friday, start by reading chapter 53 in Isaiah. It’s a long one but so worth it to read it. Read it slowly and marvel the fact that this was written hundreds of years before Jesus was born….

A Passover from Death to Life

A Passover from Death to Life

Good Friday holds a deep meaning in the life of a Christian. It is a passover from death to life. This came through Jesus’ death on the cross. But how could this event have such a huge impact on the lives of Christians? Let’s go back in time few thousand years. In the book of Exodus, God helped the children of Israel out of slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues. The tenth and worst of the plagues was the…

What Is The Meaning of Good Friday

It’s Good Friday, the day we commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus. Why did Jesus have to die on the cross? What’s the meaning of Good Friday anyway? Here it is in a nutshell: Just as one person did it wrong and got us in all this trouble with sin and death, another person did it right and got us out of it. But more than just getting us out of trouble, he got us into life! One man said no…

It Is Grace!

It Is Grace!

Don’t worry if you can’t understand the suffering of Jesus. You can still embrace Jesus. Don’t worry if you can’t figure out the mystery of faith. You can still enter the mystery of faith. Don’t worry if you can’t analyze the happenings of Good Friday. You can still trust that Jesus carried your sins on the cross. Carrying his cross by himself, he went out to a place called Skull Place (in Aramaic, Golgotha). That’s where they crucified him—and two…

Responsible for the Death of Jesus?

Responsible for the Death of Jesus?

What do you think? Are you responsible for Jesus’ death? Your answer is important. It defines whether you are ready for Easter or not. We aren’t able to receive God’s grace before we have a need for it. We aren’t ready for Easter before we embrace Good Friday. In order to do that we need to see that Good Friday’s happenings are for us. But we aren’t able to do that if we don’t see our part in the crucifixion….
