Just when we can’t seem to take any more bad news–people protesting about this or that, ISIS groups killing people–Good Friday comes. All of the bad things in our world, the broken promises by politicians, poverty, sin, hate and destruction, is offered up on the cross and defeated. The cross, which seems like a sign of contradiction, becomes our symbol of hope. Sin, death, and Satan will not ultimately win because of the cross. This messed up world is not the end because the victory of Christ’s love triumphs over everything else. The cross is our greatest hope.
I got some artwork from a friend a number of years ago stating that when I asked Jesus how much He loves me, He says “this much,” and then He spread His arms and died for me!
