The Nails, the Cross, the Blood, the Water

Pilate said to Jesus: “Don’t you realize I have the power to free you or crucify you?” -John 19:10

Doesn’t God have the power over us? Not any human can match Gods awesome power, or plan for His only Son

So the soldiers took charge of Jesus,. Carrying His own Cross he went out to the place of the skull (Golgotha) John 19:16-17

Betrayed by His own people, carrying His Cross to bear our sins, taking the blame and shame He walked in pain for us!

But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break His legs, Instead one of the soldiers pierced Jesus side with a spear bringing a sudden flow of blood and water .  John 19:33-34

The Blood that covers the multitude of sins, the water, life that was given freely to us in Him to live free from eternal death.

Can it be explained any clearer than this? He came for you and me. completing Gods plan for a Savior and in His humble heart He took the nails, He bore the Cross. The blood was spilled for redemption of sin and the water brings us to life, eternally with Him!

Shalom on this Good Friday
