What does the name Good Friday mean? Or why is it called good if it is the day Christ died?
I don’t know, but this verse gives me reason to appreciate what this holy day represents.
“And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that
in all things He may have the preeminence.
For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.” Amen.
