What is GOOD about Good Friday? Our God is GOOD! Mark 10:18 says " No one is GOOD except God." To help us to understand how GOOD God really is, we have to go back to the beginning of time.
The Lamb of God was slain before the foundation of the earth. Jesus was willing to lay down His life to take the consequences of sin that would have brought about the death of mankind. God knew that the heart of Adam and Eve was disobedient. He made provision before the Fall to rescue mankind from the peril of His punishment.
Adam's rebellion and disobedience challenged God's authority. It demanded God's eternal punishment: separation from God. Jesus' obedience to God's authority, cleansed the Heavens of Adam's sin and made a way for you and I to come back to our creator through the precious blood of Jesus. Repentance is a gift from our good God and available to all who will turn and call on the name of the Lord. The Lord will forgive us and we will be born again. IT IS FINISHED...GOD IS GOOD.
Hebrews 12:1:2 says,"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God."
Jesus not only died for my sin, but He died as if He were me! I died in Him, was buried in Him and was united with Him in His resurrection. Now that is good news, Romans 6:3-14.
