"But God demonstrates his own love toward us that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." – Romans 5:8
Good Friday for me has always been a somber day as I reflect on how Jesus died for my sins. But I am also overwhelmed with gratitude that my Savior loved me so much he chose to take the punishment I deserved. So today, I am thankful for the sacrifice Jesus made for me, for you and for everyone. A sacrifice made in love.
Luckily, the story does not end on Good Friday. Because on the third day, Easter Sunday, Jesus defeated death and rose from the grave. He is alive today! Easter is not the celebration of death, but of life!
