When I was growing up my mom and dad would have us kids stop what ever we were doing on Good Friday between 1:00pm and 3:oo pm and we had to be quiet and lay on our beds and think about Jesus dying on the Cross. I remember not liking to do this and wondered why it was called Good Friday. Now that God has renewed my heart and mind I understand why the Cross although gruesome and awful it is the only way our sin could be atoned for . I could not help but take some some this Good Friday and meditate on the Cross that had set me free from sin and death this is very good news!
"For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing , but to us who are bing saved it is the power of God" 1 Corinthians 1:18
