Today, over two thousand years ago, my Savior died on the cross for the forgiveness of my sins and the sins of the world (John 1:29). He did it so that we could be reconciled to God and have a relationship with Him (2 Corinthians 5:17-21). Through this, we live us Grace, not Law (Romans 6:14).
The verse that speaks to me the most is:
The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. Mark 15:38
because Jesus died so that we could have a direct relationship with Him and the Father, that God is available to and for everyone with no intermediary and that He will be with us always.
Have a blessed Good Friday.
