Christ's Purpose

Today, Good Friday, Jesus Christ fulfilled the first part of God's two-part plan to overcome sin and death in the world. He did what He came to do, just as He said:

"The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve,
and to give His life as a ransom for many." (Matthew 20:28)

"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost." (Luke 19:10)

"I came that they may have life and have it abundantly." (John 10:10)

Jesus is the very Word of God, Author of life, Alpha and Omega, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the Christ, the Messiah, the Savior, the beloved one and only Son of God. He is Holy and Righteous, and yet He died. Today, the wrath of God was satisfied, and our Lord's suffering ended with His last words, "It is finished."
