Why Is Good Friday Such A Good Day?

How can Good Friday be such a good day when Jesus walked through the streets of Jerusalem with a cross on his back?

How can Good Friday be such a good day when they nailed His hands and His feet to the cross, and then hung Him up to die?

How can Good Friday be such a good day when they put a crown of thorns on His head, and the soldiers gambled for His clothes?

How can Good Friday be such a good day when Jesus the son of God died on a cross – a death reserved for murderers, traitors and thieves.

Good Friday is such a good day because Jesus gave His life that we might be healed, His blood was shed for our forgiveness.

Good Friday is such a good day because it lead to Resurrection Sunday. With His death and resurrection, the path for salvation is clear we can be forgiven for our sins. Everlasting life with God in Heaven is possible for those who believe.

And that is why Good Friday is such a good day!
