What is Good Friday?

Meaning of Good Friday

Good Friday is the day commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. It is observed during Holy Week, followed by Easter Sunday. The name “Good Friday” may seem paradoxical, as it represents the crucifixion of Jesus, but the term “good” signifies the redemption and salvation that resulted from Jesus’ sacrifice.

Significance of Good Friday

Good Friday holds immense significance for Christians worldwide. It is a day of reflection, remembrance, and gratitude for the profound love that Jesus demonstrated by willingly accepting crucifixion. Through his selfless act, Jesus bore the burden of humanity’s sins, offering salvation and eternal life to those who believe in him.

The crucifixion of Jesus

On Good Friday, Jesus was nailed to a cross and crucified at Golgotha. He endured unimaginable suffering, both physically and spiritually, bearing the weight of the sins of the world. This sacrificial act symbolizes Jesus’ ultimate demonstration of love and obedience to God’s plan for redemption.

The Suffering of Jesus

Questioning the goodness

One might wonder, how can Good Friday be called “good” when it represents the suffering and death of Jesus? It is essential to understand that the goodness lies not in the suffering itself, but in the profound love and purpose behind it. Jesus willingly embraced his crucifixion to offer salvation to all humanity.

Jesus’ innocence

At the time of his crucifixion, Jesus was completely innocent. He was without sin and had committed no wrongdoing. Yet, he willingly took on the punishment for our sins, paying the price on our behalf. This extraordinary act highlights the depth of Jesus’ love and his desire to reconcile humanity with God.

Taking on the punishment for sins

By taking on the punishment for our sins, Jesus made it possible for humanity to be forgiven and reconciled with God. In doing so, he demonstrated the depth of God’s love and his desire to restore the broken relationship between humanity and divinity. Good Friday serves as a poignant reminder of the tremendous sacrifice made for mankind’s redemption.

The Plan of Salvation

Separation from God

When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, it caused a separation between humanity and God. This separation meant that mankind could no longer have direct access to God’s perfect and righteous presence. Sin entered the world through Adam’s disobedience, leading to the need for salvation and reconciliation.

God’s love and plan

Despite the separation caused by sin, God did not abandon humanity. Instead, he devised a plan of salvation out of his great love for us. Romans 5:8 beautifully expresses this love, stating that God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. God’s plan involved Jesus sacrificing his life to atone for our sins and bridge the gap between humanity and divinity.

Jesus’ sacrifice

Jesus’ sacrifice on Good Friday was not merely an act of martyrdom; it was the ultimate expression of love and the fulfillment of God’s plan for salvation. His death on the cross was the payment required for the forgiveness of sins, offering humanity the opportunity to experience new life and a restored relationship with God.

The Impact of Adam’s Sin

Adam’s disobedience

Adam’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden had severe consequences for all humanity. Through his sin, death entered the world, and the entire human race became separated from God. The effects of Adam’s disobedience extended to every individual, as all are born with a sinful nature inherited from Adam.

Condemnation for everyone

Due to Adam’s sin, condemnation came upon all mankind. We were trapped in a state of sin and spiritual death, unable to rescue ourselves from its grip. The weight of our sins made it impossible to stand before God in our own righteousness, further emphasizing our need for a savior.

Christ’s act of righteousness

In contrast to Adam’s disobedience, Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross brought righteousness and redemption. Through his act of righteousness, Jesus offered salvation to all who believe in him. He became the perfect sacrifice, bringing a right relationship with God and offering new life to everyone who accepts his gift of salvation.

The Resurrection

Easter spoiler alert

Now, let’s move ahead from Good Friday to Easter, where the true excitement lies. But, let’s not spoil too much for those who are eagerly awaiting the revelation of Jesus’ resurrection!

The excitement of Jesus’ resurrection

Easter Sunday is the day Christians celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. His victory over death and the grave brings us hope, joy, and the assurance of eternal life. The resurrection demonstrates Jesus’ triumph over sin, validating his claims of being the Son of God and the Messiah.
