REFLECTIONS: You come before the judgment seat of God full of rebellion and mistakes. Because of his justice, he cannot dismiss your sin, but because of His love, he cannot dismiss you.
So, in an act which stunned the heavens, he punished himself on the cross for your sins. God’s justice and love are equally honored. And you, God’s creation, are forgiven. (Max Lucado)
This is what Good Friday is all about.
