My Family and I were talking the other day about why this day is called Good Friday when it was a day when Christ died a brutal death on a cross. This is awful and such a terrible thing to have happened to MY Savior. But that's just it, he died a terrible, painful death, for our GOOD. He said, "Your Grief will turn to Joy." He died so that we may have HOPE and LIFE and JOY in all things. Joy in this earth and Joy because we will have eternal life with him in Heaven. It overwhelms me. He died a terrible and said, "It is FINISHED." He finished, my sin, my shame, my selfishness and downright Humaness so that HE could be glorified and find Joy with his Father in heaven. And so we might believe in him and trust him and find a JOY unspeakable in HIM. AH... The Thought. It's too much, its too good. So Good Friday to you. May you experience the JOY of your Salvation through Jesus Christ today.
