Contemplation For Good Friday


"Christ was treated as we deserve,
that we might be treated as He deserves.
He was condemned for our sins,
in which He had no share,
that we might be justified by His righteousness,
in which we had no share.
He suffered the death which was ours,
that we might receive the life which was His."

—The Desire of Ages, p. 25

All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Isaiah 53:6

Amen. At times, it seems is so difficult to accept that His death was a gift that was handed to sinners like us. laurie

I'm so glad Christ died for us and granted us the gift of repentance.

Happy Easter!
