The day when Christ Jesus of Nazareth, went to the Cross of Calvary. He willingly gave His life for all of us. Today, we remember that horrific day in honor of that great sacrifice. We celebrate His death not in jubilation, but rather in thanksgiving to only One who could buy us back from the loss in the Garden of Eden. To us it is a Good Friday-a day of rejoicing in our Great Messiah!
6 Christ died for us when we were unable to help ourselves. We were living against God, but at just the right time Christ died for us. 7 Very few people will die to save the life of someone else, even if it is for a good person. Someone might be willing to die for an especially good person. 8 But Christ died for us while we were still sinners, and by this God showed how much he loves us. 9 We have been made right with God by the blood sacrifice of Christ. So through Christ we will surely be saved from God’s anger. 10 I mean that while we were God’s enemies, he made friends with us through his Son’s death. And the fact that we are now God’s friends makes it even more certain that he will save us through his Son’s life. 11 And not only will we be saved, but we also rejoice right now in what God has done for us through our Lord Jesus Christ. It is because of Jesus that we are now God’s friends.
