“Jesus’s offering of Himself on our behalf is the measure of His love for us. That willing sacrifice continues to rescue men and women and offer assurance of eternity with Him.” -Bill Crowder, Vice President of Teaching Content at Our Daily Bread Ministries
How could something so terrible as death and suffering be considered good? It seems contradictory when you first consider Good Friday and what it means. But for us as Christians, Jesus’s death on the Cross is a very good thing because His sacrifice became the atoning work for our sins. His offering up of Himself for us was the greatest demonstration of love in all human history…and for all time. No greater sacrifice can be found elsewhere. His love and salvation extend to all who will believe in Him (John 3:16).
