Our Response: The Gift of Salvation - Receive or Reject
Luke 23:34 - Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
The cross is where we see the convergence of great suffering and God’s forgiveness. The cross of Jesus is where God’s demands, His righteousness, coincided with His mercy. We receive divine forgiveness, mercy, and peace because Jesus willingly took our divine punishment, the result of God’s righteousness against sin.
Jesus endured the cross on Good Friday, knowing it led to His resurrection, our salvation, and the beginning of God’s reign of righteousness and peace.
Wishing you the joy and peace of the Lord. May you experience the power of His love in this Good Friday. It is good because He died for you & me and take away our divine punishment.
