Just a few thoughts I had throughout the day.
There’s a reason it’s called Good Friday.
The good King laid down the only good life that had ever been lived so that those who could never be good on their own could be found good in Him.
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. – 2 Corinthians 5:21
God isn’t good because Good Friday happened.
Good Friday happened because God is good!
Good God = Good Friday.
If the darkness of this night only puts an exclamation point on the end of what feels like another hopeless day for you, I pray that you would remember that so many years ago at this time of day all hope seemed lost. The Son of God lay dead in a tomb. There he would remain for some time but that couldn’t be how the story ends because this story never ends. Life was coming. Sunday was on the way. I can tell you in full confidence that if you trust in the same Jesus Who died on Friday and lived on Sunday that though today may be your Friday, your Sunday is on the way!
