You know when you really look back on what Jesus had to go through it seems a little odd to call this "Good Friday". The pain, the agony, the humiliation, all this is good? The horror of the cross only becomes good when we look at it in light of what Jesus accomplished. Payment in full for OUR disobedience to God. Restore the Glory of the Father. It is only in the outcome of the cross that we can look back and call it "good".
As each of us spend the next few days processing the cross, let us not forget the reason it was good is because of The God of Creation was the one one on the cross.
Thank You Jesus for dying for me, so that I might live for you.
HE HAS RISEN!!!
