Finding the Good in Good Friday
Good Friday 2022
Good Friday is a confusing time for some because the celebration of the death of someone we believe is God doesn't sound like something worth celebrating. However, the reason we don't mourn Him is because we understand He was taking our place and experiencing the wrath of God so we wouldn't have to. If any emotion should accompany Good Friday, it should be thankfulness for the mercy we've been shown.
1. Jesus death was something done deliberately to redeem us back to God and predicted centuries in advance.
2. The Bible does not believe man is basically good. Jesus had to die because there was no other way to save us.
3. No one got into Heaven by being good enough. It is only through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
