It is Finished.

“But God Commendeth his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 KJV

     Today is Good Friday and while most people know this day more so because they are off work and get to have a three-day weekend. Most Christians know this day as a very special day. Today we remember that Christ died for us. The battle is over. God wins. It’s hard to understand that he died for us. I know I start thinking about all my flaws and everything I have done in my life, and I can’t contemplate why someone would go through the kind of death Jesus did for me. But then I realize that he didn’t just die for me; but also people who mock him and don’t know him.  Today is the reminder that Sunday is coming. The joy in knowing that Jesus rose from the grave. Jesus died the most horrific death anyone could die. He did this for you and me. No matter how big our sin is; because of this Good Friday that sin is wiped away and made pure. The battle is over; IT IS FINISHED. CHRIST IS VICTORIOUS!
