This is a night of burdens. It is black Friday, Good Friday, and we feel the burden. We feel the burden of our sin. Yes, we know our sin is forgiven. We know because we have been taught and we believe, but there is still that feeling, that despair, that darkness of this night. Our Savior, the Son of God, hangs upon a tree, and His lifeblood drains down the wood and stains the ground. His blood instead of ours—this is a night of burdens. Surely He has borne our sin and carried our sorrows—He is the Sin-bearer. This journey began long ago in the wilderness as a goat received the sins of the people and was led out to the evil one. Now the journey has come to a cross and the scapegoat, Jesus, carries our sins, pays our price, and gives His life for ours. Jesus is our burden-bearer, our scapegoat, our sin-bearer—and on this day, this Good Friday, we look upon the tree and see our sins laid upon the Holy One.
