What makes it so good? Have you ever asked yourself that question? Why is this Friday, of all the Fridays in a year, “Good Friday”? What makes it any different than any other Friday? It’s just another Friday…or is it?
The United States government has at least said there is something different about it. It is a national holiday here in the US. But if you’ve ever been to or involved with any type of church at any point in your life (and even if you haven’t) the odds are you know the story of Good Friday. It’s the day that Jesus Christ died on the cross and was laid in a grave. But still the question remains and now may be even more disturbing. What makes it so good?
Why is the death of anyone, let alone someone who claimed to be God and was killed unjustly, recognized as “good”?
That is a great question. The question I remember asking when I was younger. A question countless others have asked. And a question that is implied and answered in a recent video devotional a fellow pastor friend of mine covered…check it out below!
I’d love to hear your thoughts and interactions about “Good Friday”. As always and even more joyously this weekend, be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day! And I’d love for you to join us online for Good Friday and Easter Sunday services @ http://www.mvccfrederick.com.
