Good Friday

When I was younger, I wondered what was so good about Good Friday - after all, Jesus died, but as I grew older, I began to understand more. Christ's death did not signal a defeat, but a victory. His cry, "Father, into Your hands I commit my Spirit," was not one of sadness, but of joy. Jesus had finished what He came to do: pay the atonement for Creation's sins against the Creator.

By Christ's death, burial and resurrection, we can be reconciled with God, and have eternal life through Him. It is a good thing, and Good Friday is a day of remembrance and reflection for what Christ did, and what we have because of His selfless act of love.

As the weekend progresses, take time to consider the goodness of our Creator and God: the fact that He chose to send His Son into the world to forgive us, and to reconcile us to Him.
