Good Friday

In consideration of how God in human flesh, Jesus Christ, suffered so terribly on this day - one might ask why it is called "Good Friday".  The reason it is "good" is because He, Who was without sin, suffered the cruelty of the cross on "Good Friday" so that He could prove He is God by rising again from the dead three days later on what we now call Easter Sunday.  So, despite the fact that it was a terrible day for Him, He was willing to suffer, and offer the perfect sacrifice prophesied in the Old Testament, so that you and I could experience His GOODNESS in that, we can spend eternity in Heaven with Him simply by grace through faith.  By accepting the fact that we are all sinful, and that He Who died was God in human flesh paying the penalty for our sins, we can have a way to Heaven.  Now, that's GOOD NEWS.  I hope you take time this "Good Friday" and Easter to thank Him for dying for you.  It's the ONLY way you can receive eternal life.  John 3:3 - Lily Pad Cards/Simon Says Stamp Presents a Flower Challenge–-clear-cards/ - Young Crafters Unite - A Sewing/Stitching Challenge #8.  Here is their inspiration photo:
