I used to wonder why Good Friday was called ‘Good’, as I suppose many have at some point in their Christian walk.
Today I missed going to the service, which I normally attend because it is a time to feel and recognize I guess the time of sorrow that Christ felt on that day so very many years ago. We went to the service last night to commemorate the Last Supper by having one at church. But due to my husband’s medical condition that flares up sometimes, today being that day we could not go.
I do like to spend that time reflecting on how much Christ gave to us that ‘Good Friday’. How much more to celebrate on Easter Day that He overcame that horrible death and rose again. And in doing so, gave us eternal life.
I don’t always express my faith in such a definite way, but I somehow need to, today.
So, Good Friday is good because it brought us salvation when we choose to believe in Jesus, and for that I thank Him so very much.
Happy Easter …. Diane
