Our God is a Great God

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed unto his death. (Philippians 3:10 ASV)

On this Good Friday I am reflecting on what a good God we serve. Long before He sent Jesus to bring us into the family of God through adoption, He loved us. When Christ His only beloved son came to earth and poured out His blood for our salvation on the alter of the cross, he was thinking of us and loving us.

Everything we are as Christians we learned through Jesus Christ. It is through Him that we find out what we are living for. Good Friday is a day that as I child I would feel so very sad that Jesus had to go through the brutality of the beatings, the crown of thorns, being nailed to a cross and hanging there for hours dying and finally a spear stabbed into his side. As an adult I can tell you that I only feel gratitude and a very great love for Jesus Christ. He is our bridge to heaven. Jesus, however, did not just die. He rose again and by that resurrection He injected in every human heart that would believe in him that same new life with which he came out of the grave.

His father accepted his sacrifice and by doing so opened the gates of heaven to us all. Christ didn’t stop there he intercedes for us to the Father . He feels our fears and pains. He bears every burden, goes through every disease and celebrates every joy with us.

I just want to say thank you Jesus! Thank you for saving us, thank you for teaching us and most of all thank you for loving us forever and always
