Today is Good Friday.
It is the day that we remember Jesus’ sacrifice so that we could be made right with God.
For many people, Good Friday is a solemn day, in which we take time to gratefully recall how Jesus was mistreated, abused, and ultimately killed — for our benefit. The intensity of this is powerfully captured in Mel Gibson’s 2004 movie, The Passion of the Christ. If you’ve not seen it, today would be an ideal time to do so — and if you have seen it, maybe it’s time to watch it again.
Fortunately, the story doesn’t end with Jesus on the cross or even buried in the tomb. In two days we will joyfully celebrate Easter, commemorating when Jesus overcame death, painting the picture of what is in store for all who follow him.
It is on knowing what happens next, that I can say, Happy Good Friday!
