1 John 2:2- 2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

What’s so good about Good Friday/ When you think about the day, it was one that was heavy. Jesus, Son of God was wrongly accused of a crime and was sentenced to death. His death was one of the most painfully excruciating ways to die. The bible tells us that the sky grew dark when He breathed His last breath (Luke 23:44). So what’s so good about good Friday? Well, what the enemy meant for evil, God ultimately meant for good.

It was God’s plan for His Son Jesus Christ to die on an old rugged cross (Acts 2:23). Why? Because it was only by His sacrifice that mankind could be made right with God again. As Hebrew 9 mentions, in order for sins to be paid for and forgiven, blood had to be shed. Our sin separates us from God, but Jesus took on flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14), lived the perfect life we could not live, and died the death we should have died. In His death, He became the all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. So now whoever chooses to place their faith and trust in Him will be saved. The crimson stain that sin has left on us can be washed white as snow with His Crimson blood! Hallelujah! So this Good Friday, choose to reflect on the truth that Jesus’ death on the cross was the propitiation (Atoning Sacrifice) for your sins. As the old hymn goes: 

“What can wash away my sins,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus”
