What’s Good About Good Friday?

Every day is good because it is a precious gift from God. But Good Friday is good because Jesus the Christ, the Son of the only true and living God, willingly gave his life for everybody’s past, present and future sins. He died like a slaughtered lamb knowing that 3 days later he would rise again.


Since the Jewish day begins at sundown, any part of a day is counted as one day. So when he died at 3:00 pm on Friday afternoon, wasn’t seen at all from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, and then arose from the tomb early Sunday morning before the women found the empty tomb, that means he arose on the third day just like he said he would. Jesus loves everybody in the world.


Since ALL have sinned, God sent us a Savior who is Jesus Christ. Easter/Resurrection Sunday is a great day to celebrate Jesus who lives forever and will come back again just as he promised. Whosoever believes in him shall not die but have eternal life beginning in this world and on to the next when we pass from earth to our eternal reward. There is life after death. Why settle for the Easter egg symbol for new life when you can have the real deal everyday of the year forever?


Jesus says in John 12:44-46: “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. And whoever sees Me sees the One who sent Me. I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in Me should remain in darkness.” Believe in Jesus and experience the new life he gives. Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

Have a blessed Good Friday!
