The Best Friday --- but we call it Good

The Best Friday: Understanding the  Meaning of Good Friday and Easter

When you look at Christianity, it tends to not be even present, without what happened over 2,00 years ago; the death and resurrection of my Savior, Jesus Christ. The awesome realization of this is the fact that you can't talk about the death, without looking forward to the resurrection. I am glad that we are living on this side of it, because I could not imagine the 3 days of suspense between Good Friday, and at the time, just the complete faith that Jesus is going to resurrect 3 days later! In order to understand the significance of this day, in my walk with Christ. This was not just a Good Friday, but the Best Friday, and the only way it can be looked at like that, is knowing He rose again! Let's dive in!


The Sacrifice of Good Friday


Good Friday marks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who willingly gave His life to pay the price for your sins and mine. On the surface, the events of Good Friday may seem like a tragedy—a righteous man condemned to death, suffering on a cross. However, from a Christian perspective, the death of Christ was a profound act of love and sacrifice.


Payment for Sin

We are all born with a sinful nature and are separated from God as a result. The death of Jesus Christ on the cross was the ultimate sacrifice that bridged this gap, offering a path to redemption and eternal life. You can now go straight to the Savior for your forgiveness!


"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16


Victory Over Evil


While the crucifixion may appear to be a defeat, it was, in fact, a decisive victory over sin, death, and the forces of evil. By willingly laying down His life, Jesus demonstrated His power over sin and death, paving the way for the salvation of humanity.


"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8


 The Resurrection: The Culmination of Salvation


The story does not end with the death of Christ on Good Friday. Three days later, on Easter Sunday, Jesus rose from the dead, conquering death and validating His divine identity.


Victory Over Death


The resurrection of Jesus is the cornerstone of the Christian faith, affirming His victory over death and His promise of eternal life to those who believe in Him.


"He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay." - Matthew 28:6


The Hope of Resurrection


The resurrection of Jesus provides hope and assurance to believers that they too will be resurrected and will spend eternity with God.


"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die.'" - John 11:25-26


The Best Friday: A Day of Redemption and Hope


In light of the meaning of Good Friday and Easter, it becomes clear that the death of Christ was not merely a Good Friday—it was the best Friday. It was the day when God's love and mercy were fully revealed, offering salvation to all of humanity.


The resurrection on Easter Sunday is the culmination of this incredible story, affirming the victory of Christ over sin and death and providing hope for eternal life to all who believe.


Let us reflect on the immeasurable love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and let us rejoice in the hope and promise of resurrection that Easter brings.


"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." - 1 Peter 1:3


So this Easter, whether you believe or not, I pray that you will take the opportunity to look deeper into this, and if you have any questions or comments, I would love to chat!
