Good Friday – Poem

I wrote this a couple of years ago, but sharing it again.

 

Good Friday

Today is called ‘Good’ Friday

The day our Saviour died

So why do we call ‘good’ this day

This, we must decide

That day 2000 years ago

He could have been set free

Instead the crowd, yelled “crucify’

So Pilate had to agree

Jesus that day, put on the cross

Though sin He never knew

Instead He gave His life

For others…me and you

All we must do is believe that fact

And turn to Him each day

Our sins forgiven, once we ask

That’s why it’s called ‘GOOD FRIDAY’

 

“Good Friday” – Poem

I wrote this and posted it last year, and am re-blogging it with my humble attempt with a painting of Jesus….. Diane

‘Good’ Friday

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
