The wonder of the cross is that we don’t have to travel down this road called life alone.
Christ has gone through this before us. Jesus has gone through this for us.
He knows what death is like. He’s seen that awful face.
He’s seen the worst of it – and he’s got through to the other side.
The wonder of Good Friday is that the death of the Author of life brought about the death of death itself.
We can all come to the cross and be found out.
There is nothing to be scared of.
For death has been conquered and sin has been paid for.
We come to the cross and what do we find?
We come expecting judgment and instead receive mercy.
We come expecting to see the darkness of death and instead we see the dawn of life.
We come expecting to see rejection but instead we find acceptance.
We come with our hate, and we see His love.
The love that shows us that God was thinking about us, long before we ever, ever thought about him.
This is what the LORD Almighty says: “I will save my people from the countries of the east and the west.”
— Zechariah 8:7
