Christs Death and Victory
"Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit. So he went and preached to the spirits in prison--those who disobeyed God long ago when God waited patiently while Noah was building his boat. Only eight people were saved from drowning in that terrible flood. And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clean conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Now Christ has gone to heaven. He is seated in the place of honor next to God, and all the angels and authorities and powers accept his authority." 1 Peter 3:18-22
Today we reflect on the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ it's called good friday by the world but we know it was the worst fate for our Saviour. Let's honor Him this day for the great sacrifice He made to bring us to the Father, pure, whole, and blameless. By the stripes of Jesus we are made new.
For more on Good Friday.
