“What is good about Good Friday? Why isn’t it called Bad Friday? Because out of the appallingly bad came what was inexpressibly good. And the good trumps the bad, because though the bad was temporary, the good is eternal.” ~ Randy Alcorn
The power of the cross.
The power in a name.
The name of Jesus.
What a beautiful name it is.
“God proved His love on the cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’” ~ Billy Graham
Good Friday. My thoughts are jumbled and even a bit emotional as I remember the significance of this day with my cold-induced foggy brain.
So what I can’t seem to put into words today, this video says for me.
“Unless you see yourself standing there with the shrieking crowd, full of hostility and hatred for the holy and innocent Lamb of God, you don’t really understand the nature and depth of your sin or the necessity of the cross.” ~ C.J. Mahaney
He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. ~ 1 Peter 2:24
When they had carried out all that was written about him, they took him down from the cross and laid him in a tomb. ~ Acts 13:29
For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. ~ Hebrews 12:2
