The Good in Good Friday

On this Good Friday, my heart is heavy. It is so hard to see any good in this day. I close my eyes and I see our sweet Jesus. He was humiliated, ridiculed and mocked. He stood innocent, yet took our punishment to save us from certain death. Our sweet Jesus beaten and hung on a cross to die. It was torturous and gruesome and horrific.

And yet, it was good.

The paradox this day holds points to something big coming.

A Good Friday full of pain.

Perhaps your heart is hurting today? Don’t be discouraged — the pain in this day points to something big coming.

A Silent Saturday full of waiting.

Perhaps you are in a season of waiting and beginning to feel weary? Don’t be discouraged— the tragedy of this day points to something big coming…

An Easter Sunday full of the most incredible joy.

As we go through our Good Friday take the time to meditate on this timeline from the Book of Matthew. Our Savior died today — a death that should be ours. I think about the Lord using it all to point us back to him. Because in the end, everything just points back to Him.

On this Good Friday, we wait and we pray…
