There didn’t seem to be any good on the Friday that Jesus suffered and died on Calvary. With limited vision, the believers saw only death and sorrow. They didn’t yet understand the good that was to come. For it was on that horrid cross that He bore all our sin and shame.
And it was there, in the moment of greatest suffering, He spoke the greatest word ever spoken, tetelestai, it is finished. And with that He changed our path forever. He made a way for you and for me, and all who accept Him as Lord and Savior, to have a victorious life. Through the cross our redemption is perfected.
Yet, though we know the truth of the cross, we often still see with veiled eyes. When you find yourself in a Friday of sorrow, hold fast to the assurance that, as a child of the Most High, your Sunday of rejoicing is coming. For at all times, in all things, our King reigns.
Be blessed, my friends.
“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)
