why call the day of Jesus’ death “Good Friday” instead of “Bad Friday” ?


This morning i couldn’t help but think about this! Why do we have to be so excited about the day Jesus died ? What is so good about “Good Friday”? Especially when it commemorates the crucifixion and death of our Lord Jesus .
Thinking about this opened my eyes to a lot of truths and i couldn’t help but share !

Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

What the Roman soldiers did to Jesus was definitely not good ,but good hear denotes his love for us to the extent he had to die for our sins.
When you think about it ,we have every reason to thankful for today . Even though it may seem like a bad day ,a true understanding of the original intent of Our saviours death and resurrection gives us every reason to say it’s a good day .
Jesus’ death did not only save us from eternal damnation in hell ,it also rekindled the once lost relationship we had with our father in heaven .
Insomuch as this may seem like a counter intuitive ,in some cases a “bad Friday”( as i would have called it ) is good because it had to happen for us to experience the true meaning of joy in Christ .

1 Peter 3:18 tells us,

“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”

Concluding Remarks

However ,instead of remembering Christ’s death on a certain day, once a year, the Bible instructs us to remember Christ’s death by observing the Lord’s Supper.

1 Corinthians 11:24-26 declares,

“…do this in remembrance of me…for whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”
