How can we call it good?
It was a day of real suffering, pain, and loss. Jesus was laying His life down on the cross. How can we call that good?
Isaiah 53:10 tells us, "Yet it was the LORD's will to crush Him and to cause Him to suffer; and when His soul is made a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, and the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand." Good Friday is good because God received us as His children because of what Jesus did on the cross.
Join us this year at Living Hope Church on April 2 for a very special Good Friday service at 6 pm. We will remember our Lord's sacrifice and see how the joy that was set before Him enabled Him to endure the cross.
