I wanted to write this post as a letter to you guys because it feels more natural to me. Recently (a.k.a. today) I was talking to some friends at Lunch and many topics arose that I started feeling uncomfortable with. Most of these topics were on Politics and America needing some help, which I’ll admit, I agreed on some things. But then, something came across my mind, no one was talking about today and its symbol. Good Friday is the day we talk about Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins, a day we really all mourn due to the fact that our Savior had just said ‘It is Finished’. I wanted to put this out there because I’ve realized that many people of my own generation don’t stop and reflect on the significance of what happened before Jesus Rose from the Grave on Resurrection Sunday.
‘It Is Finished’ 3 words that signify the Death of Jesus. But, not only does it signify His Death, it also signifies that our sins have now been washed white as snow. We are cleansed of all our sins because Gods only son gave His life for our own.
Many people will probably say, ‘we weren’t saved until after Jesus rose’, but for me, The moment my Jesus died and the temple curtain was torn in two was when my sins were cleansed. His last breath opened the door for our restored relationship with God.
My friends, we are still naive and vulnerable to different views and beliefs, no matter our age. One of the most important things we all have to remember is the sacrifice of the son of God.
