If you’re a believer—it’s a great question.
Where IS the “good” in Good Friday?
Why call this particular day—Good Friday?
Good for who? It certainly wasn’t good for Jesus.
One look at the nature of the cross and we can see it was horrible for Him.
Yet–it was good for us. Great as a matter of fact!
What took place on that cross that made it so great?
. . .why is something that happened so long ago, so far away, all that relevant to you and me?
When Jesus died on that cross, He literally took your sins and mine off of us. They got assigned to Him.
Then His righteousness was assigned to you and me—so that when the Father looks at us, He sees the righteousness of Christ—His Son!
It is truly a GOOD Friday!
