T.G.I.G.F.

Good Friday, Why it's Called Good Friday, Christ's Redemption
J.J. Tissot, Bible Picture Gallery
For thousands of years, one Friday has been called “Good” above all others. 

What's so good about Good Friday?
  • Soldiers flogged an innocent man with bits of bone and metal attached to leather straps until he was hardly recognizable as a man (Isaiah 52:14
  • They mocked him and stuck large thorns into his bleeding scalp
  • They forced him to carry a 90 pound wooden cross against his torn flesh
  • They drove 6 inch nails into his wrists and feet and hung him on a cross
  • He had to inch his torn flesh up the splintered cross to catch each breath...for six hours…until He died.
And why are these horrible things good?
Jesus did this for you and me…died for your sins and mine…gave us our only escape from death and hell.

"Good" cannot begin to describe the wonder of Good Friday.
Let’s rejoice in that wonder! T.G.I.G.F.

The story of Good Friday is in Matthew 27:26-56.

I hope your Easter celebration will continue throughout the year!

  6. Good Friday is always a day mixed with somberness and joy. I so appreciate your devotionals.
    I'd love it if you'd stop by and link an encouraging post to my blog. http://www.lessonsfromivy.com/2012/04/being-content-in-mothering.html

    This is slightly off topic but have you ever considered sharing the html code to the linkup banner you have at the bottom of all your posts?
