Origami Cross -Strip Folding Today is Good Friday, the day when Christ’s crucifixion and death on the cross is remembered by Christians world over.

So why did Jesus Christ have to die on the cross? And rise again on the third day?

Our God is a holy God. But we humans are born sinners and God’s holiness demands that sin be punished. As Romans 6:23 says, ‘The wages of sin is death’. This death means spiritual death, a death by which we are forever cut off from God. So how do we humans maintain a relationship with a holy and just God who cannot tolerate sin?

This is possible only through Jesus Christ, who came into the world as the perfect, complete and eternal sacrifice. He was sacrificed in our place, He bore our sins so that we may be forgiven them and may have a relationship with our Holy God. Our God loves us so much that He was willing to sacrifice His only Son, in our place, so that we may have eternal life!

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIV)

Good Friday is the culmination of Christ’s life on earth, when He was made a willing sacrifice and was crucified on the cross for sins He did not commit and where He suffered and died. He then rose again on the third day, the day celebrated as Easter.

Good Friday is a day of repentence and prayer, a day to remember God’s sacrifice for us, a day to ask forgiveness, a day to renew our relationship with God. But how many of us go through the days of Lent and Good Friday and Easter year after year and yet fail to recognize God’s love for us, fail to realise this great sacrifice that God has done for us, fail to accept the Lord as our Saviour and lose out on an eternal life with God? Something to really think about..
