Good Friday

The Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday, traditionally observed as the day Jesus was crucified, bearing our sin so that all who believe and accept His substitutionary sacrifice are exempt of the penalty. While the suffering Christ was subject to was not good, the results are very good for us for “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us…The righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God” (Rom 5:8; 1 Pet 3:18). The death of Christ on the cross is the paramount event of the Christian faith.
