Good Friday Favorites: Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ

This image struck me.

Jesus Christ shed his blood so that I may be forgiven.

FORGIVEN.

Truly forgiven, covered in grace, through faith in Him.


AMAZING!


We find grace and favor and LIFE in the eyes
of the one and only God of justice
through faith in Jesus Christ. 

Jesus lived a perfect life...perfection here on earth...
a life perfect and blameless in the eyes of God.

He did what only He could do.  He obediently died on the cross.
In doing so, he suffered the wrath of God, in our place, and 


WIPED THE SLATE CLEAN


for you...for me...for all of us...for all of eternity.

For there is one God and one mediator between
God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who
gave himself as a ransom for all people. 
1 Timothy 2: 5-6

WHAT AMAZING NEWS!


Jesus took the place of every imperfection, 
every offense,  every terrible thought,
every horrible icky rotten thing we as humans can conjure up...
every sin that deserves God's righteous anger
and died a death on the cross, once and for all, so that we are free to live!
Our sins are no longer held against us.
It is finished.

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, 
he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain 
of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom... 
Matthew 27:50-51

He died for us so that, whether we are awake
or asleep, we may live together with him.
1 Thessalonians 5:10

I encourage you to give your time to God today,
pray and be thankful for what He has done for you.
Try to grasp the magnitude of his sacrifice.

You are covered by God's grace, love, 
and mercy...all through faith in Jesus Christ.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, 
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 
through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in 
which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 
Romans 5:1-2

Blessings to you and your family on this Good Friday!
