In the beginning, God made it all. The light and the dark; the seas, the land and the plants that grew on it. The sun, the moon, the stars. The fish, the birds and the animals that move along the ground. And mankind, made in His image. There were evenings and mornings. And He saw that it was good.
God foreknew that His image-bearers would sin and He would need to save them.
In His perfect time, God made The Way. His sinless Son was mocked and belittled. He was whipped and beaten. He was nailed to a cross to suffer and die. He paid the horrible, bloody, agonizing penalty for every sin of every evening and morning. It was Friday. And God saw that it was Good.
