You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!
— Romans 5:6-10 NIV 
 We call this day "good friday" because truly it is for us. Today represents the day that Jesus Christ died for us all. This wasn't a "good" or "fun" day for him. He wasn't going on easter egg hunts with his local group of friends or going to eat lunch with his family. He made the biggest sacrifice someone could for one another,  he gave his life.  Today, I want to give my true first blog post to say this. That God loves every single one of you. Yes, even you. Your past may haunt you daily, but Christ is calling you to him. Because on this day we consider good, he died the most painful and horrifying death for us to save us, but it didn't end there. Three days later Jesus rose from the dead to show us who he truly is. He is the King of all Kings. Death couldn't defeat Him. He is GOD. He is ALIVE. He wants a relationship with every single one of us today. So, if you haven't today, tell him thank you and that you love Him. Does't matter where you are in our walk with Christ. Show him appreciation. For some of us it could be the 10th time we have done that today or it may be the first time you have in years, or ever. But tell him thank you for giving his life on that day for us. A thank you doesn't even begin to do justice for such a gift, but he will appreciate it no matter what. Because he love us.

For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.
