Good Friday is observed as the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The death on the cross was the cruellest and barbaric capital punishment. This kind of death was reserved for most notorious criminals. However, when the governor Pilate examined Jesus Christ for the accusations against Him. He found Jesus Christ innocent. Then why did Jesus Christ was crucified?
The answer was that He died for me and you. He died a substitutionary death. This death saved us. Whoever believes in this substitutionary death will be saved from the penalty of Sin.
This is the good news which converted the horrific Friday into a Good Friday.
John 3:16 TPT
For this is how much God loved the world he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.
