What’s good about Good Friday? Thousands of years ago, Jesus suffered and was crucified on the cross for our sins. The suffering of Jesus was not only physical, but He also suffered the emotional pain of relational rejection. This means that Jesus, God the Son, is able to relate to humankind and our sufferings. He suffered the most on the cross for us. Before the foundation of the world was created, God made this plan because of His love for us and so that we would be saved. The goodness of God was shown through Jesus’ death on this Good Friday.
