“What Is Good Friday And Why Do We Call It Good Friday?”

22 04 2011

Greetings I bring to you my beloved friends in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer! Dear friends as we look at today’s article, it is the most important day in ones Christian life. Today, Christians all around the globe will observe this day to commemorate the “Crucifixion of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” who was crucified to the cross 2000 years ago! Friends, let us see what the word of God has to reveal to us all about “Good Friday?”Dear friends, as we look again at the above topic, “What is Good Friday and Why do we call it Good Friday?” Good Friday is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for the sins of all mankind regardless of their race and religion. Why is “Good Friday” referred to as “good” when someone has to be tortured and be crucified on the Cross not for His sins but for the sins of the world that was committed by all mankind regardless of their race and religion? What “good” do we see in that crucifixion, when a man who was sinless of His sins has to be tortured and crucified for the sins of others? Just keep in track with me my friends!

Dear friends, what the Jewish authorities and the Romans did to Jesus Christ was definitely “not good” at all. They accused Jesus Christ and brought forth all kinds of false testimonies against Him that was not true.( Matthew Chapter 27-27 ) However the death of Christ’s death on that Cross was “Good!” (1st Peter 3:18) tells us, “For Christ died for our sins once and for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to be reconciled to God!” Yes, my friends as you and I see, “At just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were all still sinners, Christ died for us!” (Romans:5:6-8) That is why we call it “Good Friday!”

Dearly beloved friends, it is really not easy to die for the sins of others! Are you and I willing to die for the sins of others? I don’t think so that anyone for the matter will come up to you and I and say that they are willing to die for our sins! Even our own flesh and blood will not do it my friends! The only person who did it without seeing who we are regardless of our race and religion, was only Jesus Christ! Jesus made a difference when He made an impact on the whole world by dying for the sins of others! He made you and I clean by His precious blood that was shed in Calvary 2000 years ago. Christ purchased us not with “gold” or “silver” but by His “Precious Blood!’ He redeemed us with His blood that is why throughout the Lent season, in my greetings to you my friends, I refer Jesus Christ as “Our Redeemer!” Today, my friends if you think that you are in the bondage of sin, remember Jesus Christ took all your sins on that cross in Calvary and “He remembers your sins no more, my friends!” You are washed, cleansed and freed from all your sins. Today, “Salvation is free to all those who believe that Jesus died for your sins.” Claim your Salvation Today! Have a Blessed Lent Season. Jesus Loves You All!

God Bless.
