Good Friday

2 Apr

When I was a young girl I remember asking my mother just why we referred to the Friday before Easter as GOOD Friday. It seemed to both of us that no matter how she tried to explore this with me we both would feel rather unsettled after the conversation. She could not find the right words to satisfy the curiosity of her young daughter on her early steps of a faith journey and I still had questions.

Even as an adult it is hard to capture just how goodness can come from death.

The hymn writer, Stuart K. Hine, upon his composition of the hymn text, HOW GREAT THOU ART, marveled at the mysterious feelings that come with Good Friday. In one of his later stanzas of the historic hymn he writes about the awesome experience of being amazed and awed by the grand Godly gesture that Good Friday represents:

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on a Cross, my burdens gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Good Friday is here and it heralds the coming of the day of resurrection. It is a bold reminder of God’s love.
