Why It's Good Friday Today?
Let us rejoice today with thanksgiving in our hearts for the Son of God died on the cross so that we may live. Though He died but the grave could not hold Him. Because He lives and He is now seated at the right Hand of God the Father, we will also live with Him forever. Hallelujah!

“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God” (1Peter 3:18).

“Everyone was going to face punishment because Adam sinned. But because of the good thing that Christ has done, God accepts us and gives us the gift of life. 19 Adam disobeyed God and CAUSED ALL OF US TO BE SINNERS. BUT JESUS OBEYED THE FATHER AND WILL MAKE MANY PEOPLE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD. 20 The Law came, so that the full power of sin could be seen. Yet where sin was powerful, God’s kindness was even more powerful. 21 Sin ruled by means of death. But God’s kindness now rules, and God has accepted us because of Jesus Christ our Lord. This means that we will have eternal life” (Romans 5:17-21).

Now I fully understand why the Apostle Paul said that we are saved by grace alone through faith not by works. Because of God’s great love for us, He sent His One and Only Begotten Son to fulfill the law which we failed to obey so that through His sacrificial death on the cross as the atoning sacrifice for our sins we are now forgiven, we are now made holy, God has already made us perfect forever in His sight (Hebrews 10:10,14).

Now I fully understand why assuredly I can enter heaven. NOT BECAUSE SOMEBODY PRAYED FOR ME NOR BECAUSE I DID SOMETHING GOOD, BUT BECAUSE OF WHAT MY RISEN SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST HAS DONE ON THE CROSS for me and for all those who believe and accept Him that He came to save us from all our sins for He did not come for the righteous but He came for the sinners like me (1Timothy 1:15).

Satan, the accuser can accuse me of all my sins from small to big ones, but my Lord and Savior Jesus who will be the One to face the Father has only one answer to defend me, “HE HAS FULLY PAID ALL MY SINS ON THE CROSS” (1John 2:1-2). “Babayaran ko pa ba and binayaran na Niya?” Do I still have to pay what has already been paid? We therefore do good not in order to enter heaven but we do good because we are bound to enter heaven.

Praise the Most Holy Name of Jesus forever and ever.
