Good Friday

Why is today called Good Friday?  
Is it called Good Friday because it is good to have a day off?  Fridays are always anticipated but when it is Friday and a holiday we have double reason to celebrate. Go ahead; enjoy the time with family and friends.  Try to put your work aside.  But don’t let the day end with truly reflecting on why it is Good Friday. 

In Germany they call this day mourning Friday.  Jesus was crucified, so the disciples mourned. But I prefer calling it good because the disciples mourning only lasted till Sunday when Jesus defeated death by rising from the dead.  It is good for all who believe because forgiveness and salvation is theirs.  Jesus lived a perfect life, died a horrific death then rose again to defeat death.  He did it all for us because of love.  We can put our trust in Him.  So it is the day of the greatest good.  The day one man sacrificed it all for the good of all mankind. 

Go out and have a good day.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach
