Tomorrow is Good Friday. It indeed is a “Good” Friday for all those who believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
The graphics for this cross were purchased from www.mygrafico.com (Cupcake Cutiees). While it is a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice for us, the original cross was far from being this pretty.
700 years before Christ’s coming, the prophet Isaiah predicted the Lord’s death for our transgressions. Youcan read about it in Isaiah 53.
“53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed.
53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is dumb,
so he opened not his mouth.”
I will be forever grateful.
