Death vs Life
Sorrow vs Joy
Despair vs Hope
Good vs Bad
Today is Good Friday around the world. How can today be called good when the world is “falling apart at the seams”?
Today is the day when followers of Jesus remember the great act of love the anointed one chose for our sakes. Christ, the son of God, willingly took the blame and consequences of sin on Himself. He paid the penalty of death for all our misdeeds, mistakes, rebellion, stubbornness (we call this sin) while NEVER committing any sin.
But this still sounds like bad news, you say? You would be right, except for one thing. And if you don’t know what this one thing is, ask yourself
What do Christians CELEBRATE on resurrection day?
I’ve included an “oldie but a goodie” as a way of honoring my mother who made sure I knew why Good Friday is good.
