What’s so Good about Good Friday?

Two thousand years ago we sentenced an innocent man to death. We betrayed our teacher, our friend, our God. We crucified Jesus Christ, the only human who was ever without sin. He was perfect, he was pure and he loves us.

So, what’s so good about Good Friday? Jesus is more than just a man. He is our Lord and he is our God. He chose to die. He did it for us. He took the punishment meant for us. He sacrificed himself so that we might live. Without this sacrifice we would have no hope for any future. We would end and never be able to stand in God’s glorious presence.

We are saved because of God’s love. We are forgiven.

This was meant to be. This was God’s plan from the very beginning.

What does Good Friday mean to you? What do you do to remember Christ’s sacrifice?

Today demonstrates the power and sovereignty of God. What a wonderful time of the year for us. It is really the demonstration of His goodness. Sunday's comin'.

Blessings and Happy Easter!

I was thinking that same thought this morning - why do we call it "good" Friday?

For me, His death represents life, grace, mercy, and forgiveness for me! He had to die for me to really life.

So grateful!

Thanks for the reminder...

Thanks too for stopping by my blog to encourage me!

Blessings,
Melanie
