Final Thoughts on Good Friday

For some people, it's still Good Friday, though it's after midnight on Saturday morning in my part of the world.

Along with Christmas Eve, I think that Good Friday is my favorite special day on the Church calendar.

To think of what Jesus, God in the flesh, did for sinners like me is overwhelming.

By the death of this sinless Savior in our place, He banishes sin and death from the eternal futures of all who believe in Him. Then, by the Holy Spirit, God guides us, despite our imperfections and the sadness that often comes our ways, through this life.

Good Friday shows us graphically and definitively, God's amazing grace.

Martin Luther taught that if you want to know what God is like, look to Christ on the cross. There, God's love for all is seen with clarity.
