Good Friday

Genesis 3:15

Today is Good Friday. It is the day when we remember the suffering and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We remember His death that paid the penalty for our sin.

Long ago God promised to send a Savior. In Genesis 3:15 God promised that an offspring of the woman would bruise the head of the serpent, but the serpent would only bruise the heel of the offspring. And that is exactly what happened.

The Lord God said to the serpent, 
“Because you have done this,
    cursed are you above all livestock
    and above all beasts of the field;
on your belly you shall go,
    and dust you shall eat
    all the days of your life.
I will put enmity between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and her offspring;
he shall bruise your head,
    and you shall bruise his heel.” 
Genesis 3:14-15

On the cross Jesus died and took the punishment that you and I deserve. He died in our place. But His death was not permanent. He overcame death and rose again (and we will celebrate that on Easter)! By overcoming death, Christ defeated Satan. One day Satan's final defeat will come, and he will be thrown into the lake of fire, where he will stay for all of eternity.

Those who trust in Jesus as Savior receive forgiveness of sins and everlasting life! Do you know Jesus as your Savior?

Dear friend, if you do not yet know Jesus, set your eyes on Him and believe.

Set Your Eyes

Lyrics: 
O my soul lift your eyes
The Son of God has been crucified
O my soul lift your eyes to your salvation 
O my soul lift your head
The weight of sin has been nailed to Him
O my soul lift your head to your salvation 
Jesus has been lifted high
Set your eyes on Him
Set your eyes on Him
Jesus has been lifted high
And He is drawing all men
Drawing all men 
O my soul look and believe
By His stripes you have been made clean
O my soul look and believe
On your salvation 
Look to the cross
Look to the cross
Look to the cross
And believe 
O my soul get up and go
Tell someone Christ has made you whole
O my soul get up and go
Tell of your salvation
