Good Friday

As I was walking along the Humber River in Weston Ontario, yesterday afternoon, I was pondering the one mind boggling fact that, over two thousand years ago, a innocent human being had been arrested, falsely accused and hung on a cross, the most shameful death one could ever be condemned to, deserted by all who claimed to be His friends and yet, it is a day we call good, why is that? It is because that innocent man, was the sinless unique Son of God, who willfully took upon Himself the sins of mankind so that He could gather a people to Himself by saving sinners like me from the eternal punishment of hell.

“He was wounded for OUR transgressions; he was crushed for OUR iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought US peace, and with his stripes WE are healed.” Isaiah 53.5
