Good Friday Perspective

My understanding of the nature of our Omniscient, Omnipotent, OMNIPRESENT God, is that He exists outside of time and space. In fact, He created those concepts for His creatures. With that in mind, I was thinking about Christ’s great sacrifice for me on the first Good Friday so long ago and the pain and suffering He experienced.

I’ve always supposed, once His excruciating death was accomplished and He’d risen on Easter morning, the one-time-only experience was behind Him. If, as I believe, the three persons of God simultaneously exist in past, present and future, then isn’t it possible that Christ can never put the experiences of Good Friday behind Him? That His was, and is, an eternal sacrifice? How much greater my debt, and how much more profound my gratitude, when I consider such a gift.

No matter christ on the crosshow Christ continues to realize His crucifixion outside of linear time, when I look at it this way, He continues suffering for me, everyday.

Until I see Him face to face, I won’t understand the many mysteries of our triune God, but even the possibility of my sins continuing to cause my Redeemer to relive the suffering He endured moves my spirit to greater worship of Him.

Hallelujah, what a Savior!
