But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Today is Good Friday! Christ endured being treated like a common criminal, the worst of the worst, so that we could have this promise. The full meaning of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ; the forgiveness of sin and the promise of eternal life. The resurrection is the evidence that life does not stop after our physical death, the cornerstone of the Christian faith. This is God’s new covenant with mankind, a pathway to righteousness in the presence of God almighty. Happy Easter to All!
