GOOD friday?

i’m not so sure what was good about Good Friday.

we call it ‘good’ because of the resurrection. but let’s not jump ahead of ourselves. Jesus didn’t rise until sunday morning.

friday was most definitely bad.

taking resurrection out of the equation (because friday precedes sunday, naturally), there’s nothing good about being stripped, beaten, spit upon, mocked by the same people whom you healed, loved and cared for, hung on a cross to die for, all while God turns a blind eye.

Jesus hung there completely and utterly alone, abandoned even by his own father. for the next two days his destiny was hell so that the same people who’d mistreated him would be able to sit with him in eternity.

there’s nothing good about it, except perhaps the state of Jesus’ heart. because only a good person would do that for a bad world.
