Today, we Christians celebrate Good Friday. Sometimes folks are confused as to why we would call the day our Savior was crucified good. That’s understandable. It’s not often that people celebrate the death of their Leader/Hero/Etc. But, this hints at the heart of the Christian faith. That is, we believe Christ won by His death. As the Apostle Peter wrote, “For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God…” (1 Peter 3:18). Jesus came as a Savior to die in the place of sinners. In His life He taught, He preached, He healed, He cast out demons, and He cut down the self-righteous, but the hour that He came for was not found in His life, but in His death.

But, there is one more thing to note. The reason Christians celebrate Good Friday is because of the reality of Easter. Christians do not worship a dead Savior, but a Living Savior. Jesus’ death is celebrated because it wasn’t the final word; Jesus rose again three days later. Friday is something to celebrate for those who believe Sunday is a comin’.

As S.M. Lockridge preached it best. Yes, it is Friday, but Sunday’s a comin’.
