GOOD Friday?

Eph1-7

Have you ever wondered why the day Jesus Christ died such a horrible death is called GOOD Friday? Doesn’t it seem as if this should be the blackest day in history? What can possibly be GOOD about it?

Beloved, Jesus willingly allowed Himself to be put to death so that we might live with Him for eternity! This is why this day is commemorated as a GOOD day. We are all born as sinners and there is no way we can get to heaven apart from the saving grace of Jesus Christ’s death on that cross at Calvary. That one death paid the price for us to have the opportunity to be in heaven when we die.

All you need to do is:

  • ADMIT that you are a sinner (we ALL are!)
  • BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died to pay for our sin penalty
  • CONFESS and repent of your sins and fully acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Lord of your life.

Yes, we should mourn the death of Jesus Christ because He endured so much on our behalf. But even more, we should celebrate this day as the beginning of mankind’s chance to share in the intimate fellowship with Jesus forever!

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.

  1. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved! Acts 2:38 and Mark 16:16. Today is Friday, but Sunday is coming! Praise God!

  2. Oh yes Anna! It is a time for sober reflection but more of rejoicing for Jesus is no longer on the cross!
    Thanks for sharing and Have a super blessed resurrection week!
    Love

    • I’m with you, Ugochi! Our “sober reflection” of the immense sacrifice Jesus made for us is coupled with our immense joy that the grave no longer holds Him!

      May you and yours enjoy a very blessed Resurrection Sunday!

  3. Just finished my lesson for Sunday, on Matthew 28, and here you are, Anna — carrying out the Great Commission! TESTIFY!
    Happy Easter!

  4. Thanks for sharing… It always looked so contradictory why the day is termed as “GOOD” & your notions for the same have framed it well..

  5. As blood-bought, adopted children of the living God, we face Good Friday from a different aspect, because we already KNOW the outcome.

    We know the REALITY of a living Saviour.

    We can glory in what happened on the cross simply because we know what the finished work of Christ there secured for us. We know that His work was acceptable to God, because God proved this by raising Him from the dead.

    Good? Even the most superlative superlative could not describe how “good” that event was!
