He did it for us...

It's Good Friday.
Not a good day for Jesus all those years ago.
But definitely a good day for us.
Thank you Jesus for doing it for me.
Thank you that even if I were the only one on the whole earth,
you still would have died on that cross...for me.
You still would have endured the mocking...the ridicule...
the beatings, oh...the beatings.
Beaten beyond recognition.
Beaten more than a body should have been able to endure.
But you are God. And you endured it.
And endured it.
And then some.
For me.
And I am grateful.
I love you.
Thank you for doing it for me.
John 19:28-30
28 Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty." 29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Ah, but it WAS a good day for Jesus. For on that day He provided the redemption of His people! And the justification for His people. And provided the imputed righteousness for His people! Oh, a great day indeed for Jesus! And for us.
