WHY IS GOOD FRIDAY GOOD?

To answer this, let’s go back to the First Easter

…if Judas hadn’t betrayed Jesus, we wouldn’t have the cross,

… if Jesus hadn’t chosen the cross, He wouldn’t  have died,

…if there had not been death, there wouldn’t have been a resurrection,

…if there isn’t a resurrection then there is no new life,

…if there is no new life then there is no hope .

It is good that Jesus became man.

It is good that Jesus said Yes to the Father.

It is good that Jesus taught us a new way to live.

It is good that Jesus chose the cross.

It is good that through death, Jesus gave us a new life.

It is good that Jesus gave us hope.
