What's So Good About Good Friday?

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17

Today is Good Friday. What does that mean? It's the Friday before Easter. And, it has significance because it is the day that Jesus went to the cross and died for our sins. Easter is the happy day. It's the day Christ came back to life from the dead. But, Good Friday doesn't sound very good. It is good for you and I because it gives us hope. Hope that we will have an eternity with God in heaven. Sunday is coming.

I know that many of you don't share my beliefs. Some of you may think I am a fool for my beliefs. That's okay. I'm not here to convince you. It takes a step of faith to believe. But, I truly pray that you at least consider the fact that YOU were worth dying for.

Here is a song that I adore and it has a wonderful meaning for this Easter season. The video is graphic as it has scenes from the movie The Passion of the Christ in it. Just a warning for you all.

So easy to forget that *I* was worth dying for, as you said. Me, the worthless fool who is constantly stumbling. Thank God for grace, right?! Happy Good Friday, Julie!!
