Good Friday, Awesome God

He didn't have to do it
He could have avoided the pain
He could have given up on us

He didn't have to do it
But he chose to die
He chose to obey the Father
He willingly gave his life

He didn't have to do it
But he did!

What made this decision 
to do such a hard thing so easy?


For God, the awesome and amazing God,
loved us so much
that he gave his only Son
to die on a cruel cross
for a fallen race, enemies of God at best,
so that he might buy us back from
the devil
and sin

Love was at work
when all we see on Good Friday
and death

It was the love
of God
that made this day

What's so good about Good Friday?

In this terrible day
we see the extent of God's love
that he would give his one and only Son
to redeem us.

"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." 1 John 4
