It is finished!


It is done He said.

It is done after enduring betrayal and rejection from His friends.

It is done after facing physical torment, mockery and emotional agony from His enemies.

It is done after crying out to His Father ‘Why God?’.

It was done the moment He breathed his last breath.

All the pain, all the suffering, all the humiliation, all the blood. We have to wonder, why call it good Friday? It doesn’t sound all that good, does it? Surely there must have been a simpler, more tolerable, even easier way? Yet Jesus endured what He did for the sake of you and me.

You see the only thing separating us from God was sin and Jesus understood that the only way for us to truly be with our Father, to experience His compassion, grace, abounding lovingkindness and faithfulness was to pay the ultimate price - Death.

Here’s the thing though - Was it all for nothing? In dying the excruciating death that He did, Jesus granted us the opportunity to put to death our sin, shame, guilt and feelings of worthlessness. He did it so that we can walk in freedom and be with our Father.

He tore the veil.

If we want to really understand why good Friday is so good, we might just need to ask ourselves the question. Are we walking in this freedom that Jesus has given us or are there parts of us that need to be laid down with the cross?

Today we get to mourn all the pain and suffering that Jesus had to endure for our sake, yet we also get to walk in freedom because of it.

We cerebrate because Friday was not the end - Sunday’s still coming!


Matthew 27

Exodus 34: 5-7


Holy Spirit would you help us to bring to light today the things in our hearts and heads that need to be put to death. Would you open our eyes to the things that are holding us back from walking in freedom and being with our Father. Thank you Jesus for the price that you paid for us. Today we stand in remembrance. In Jesus almighty name we pray. Amen.
