This message is very timely, right now is the 4th day of Holy Week which people celebrate due to remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross. But do we really know the true meaning of Jesus dying on the Cross?
1 John 1:7
… and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanse us from all sin.
The very reason Jesus came is to save us (John 3:17) and give us life to the full (John 3:15). Through accepting Him as your Lord and Savior you be able to experience the eternal life that He promised, you will be Son of God through Him. His blood that was shed from the Cross was the sacrifice for us to reach God the Father. He all redeem us from the world of sin and we are righteous through the eyes of God because of what His Son did. We cannot add anymore from the sufferings that Jesus made because when the time He said that “It is finished” (John 19:30) that means that He had done everything for us. Jesus loves you so much that He surrendered His life for you. I hope we will not just be reminded of this every Holy Week but everyday, every hour and every minute of your life.
And also, I wanna add.. He is alive! He rose again after 3 days, right? That’s why He’s not dead every Friday. 🙂
As we look at the Cross, let’s not just be reminded of death but also the Eternal life that Jesus brought through His sacrifice. 🙂
Enjoy your vacation 🙂
