||Good Friday Meditation
Why Is Good Friday Good?
God is holy and his holiness is incompatible with sin. Humans are sinful and our sin separates us from God. The punishment for sin is eternal death. But human death and animal sacrifices are insufficient to atone for sin. Atonement requires a perfect, spotless sacrifice, offered in just the right way.
Jesus Christ was the one and only perfect God-man. His death provided the perfect atoning sacrifice for sin. Only through him can our sins be forgiven. When we accept Jesus Christ's payment for sin, he washes away our sin and restores our right standing with God. God's mercy and grace make salvation possible and we receive the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
This is why Good Friday is good.
