Today is Good Friday -- the commemoration of Jesus' death on the Cross as a sacrifice for our sins.

Time to be introspective: How can we put sin to death in our lives? Have we trusted in God's strength, or are we trying in our own power and failing?

Let's pursue holiness, as the reason for Jesus' death was our sin.

But let's temper our inner misery with the joy of the finished work that will be commemorated on Resurrection Day, because God knew the end from the beginning, and Jesus completely did the will of the Father in order that we might be at peace with God.

Romans 5:8-9
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
