How can this day of remembering the crucifixion of our Lord be called good?
What is good about the murder of an innocent man?
And make no mistake, this man was truly innocent. He was perfect. He had never and could never sin.
And because He was perfect, He alone could satisfy the Father's wrath.
We often wonder, and books have been written wondering 'Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?' We should be asking "Why do good things happen to bad people?
Good Friday. Good for us sinners of whom I am one.
The populace meant it for evil. God used it for good.
