The "Good" of this Friday

Friday 21st March 2008 - Good Friday.

Yet he was pierced through for our faults,
crushed for our sins.
On him lies a punishment that brings us peace,
and through his wounds we are healed.

We had all gone astray like sheep,
each taking his own way,
and the Lord burdened him
with the sins of all of us.

Isaiah prophesied the how and why of Jesus' death.

Here lies the heart of the "Good News" of Jesus death, the reason why this Friday is "Good". I read these verses again, bow my head and give thanks. Today, at 3:00PM, I will kiss the nailed feet that have given me so much.

Thank you Lord Jesus. By your stripes I am healed.
