Category Archives: Good Friday
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!

Why is Good Friday referred to as “good”? What the Jewish authorities and Romans did to Jesus was definitely not good. However, the results of Christ’s death are very good!
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” —Romans 5:8
“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.” —1 Peter 3:18
We should never forget what Jesus Christ did for us on Good Friday. His death on the cross paved the way for us to be with Him forever in heaven. He was sinless, yet His shed blood paid the price for our sins! So I am able to say in full agreement:
