Commemorating Good Friday

(Please refresh your page, this post has been updated)  Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary.  Why do we call Good Friday “good,” when it is such a dark and bleak event commemorating a day of suffering and death for Jesus?  We recognize and remember his sufferings for us as  well as  celebrate his victory over death! Just like in our own lives we can recall bad times, but God made it work out for our good!  I weep as I type this, as the spirit moves me for how good the Lord is, how good he’s been to me!  “Bless the Lord Oh my soul and all that is within me,” Psalm 103:1!  God We praise you!  There’s no greater Love!!!!!!!

Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday.  On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of Jesus Christ.  Many Christians spend Good Friday in fasting, prayer, repentance, and meditation on the agony and suffering of Christ. How great is our Lord!
