It’s not too often that anyone would actually rejoice and celebrate whenever someone loses their life in a gruesome way, especially undeservedly. Worst yet, no one commemorates the day that the person die by calling it ‘A Good Day’. Well Good Friday is just that. It’s almost oxymoronic that the day Jesus was crucified is referred to as Good Friday. Some might ask, “What’s so good about him suffering on a cross after being beaten and humiliated?” Well the reason he did it makes it a celebratory occasion. He died so we might live. Yes, we do not necessarily condone the method he chose to obliterate our sins but it was his choice and because he did it, we have hope. Isn’t that good? Good nuff for me.
So as we celebrate Easter and Good Friday, let’s remember what transpired on that fateful day. It wasn’t just about HIM dying on a cross but what it symbolized. Our sins were put on that cross. Let’s celebrate and have a Happy Easter!
