Reflections on "Good" Friday


How could a day so dark and gruesome
Ever be described as “good”?
When the sinless, spotless Jesus
Gave His all, His life, His blood.

But, ah, the “good” accrued to sinners
We, ourselves, deserved to die;
But the blood of His atonement
Rent the veil and brought us nigh.

Now we stand, redeemed, forgiven,
Ransomed, justified and free;
Guaranteed a place in heaven
With the King eternally.

All the “good” that we could muster
Never could our sin debt pay;
But by trusting in His merit
We have LIFE this “Good Friday”.

Dear nice!
I guess God knew the day was good!

Psalm 118:24
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Ever since that day, millions have been saved by His laying down His life for us and we have been made glad and God is surely pleased!

Isaiah 53:10
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

Your poem says it all dear Pilgrim!
It is truly a GOOD Friday!...Love Terry
