The hour has finally come for Jesus to drink the cup of suffering
This is none other than the cup of judgement, full of the horrible wrath of God
Would Jesus rue the day?
He could if He were to choose not to redeem you and me
That would truly be a day of doom and darkness
The Son of Man must fulfill what was written of Him in the Scriptures
As it has been written of Him, Jesus the Lord of glory is to be stricken by God Himself
Could Jesus ruin the plan?
He could if He were to leave our destiny to you and me
That would really be a day of loss and sorrow
Today is Friday, a day before the Sabbath, for the Jews, then and now
Jesus has paid “the wages of sin” in full, fulfilling all the Scriptures foretold of Him
“It’s finished,” He said
He has accomplished the redemptive works for you and me
This makes today Good Friday for us all
