Good Friday

Good Friday.
Have you ever wondered why it is called "Good" Friday?  How could the death of Jesus, the King of Israel, be "Good".
I guess if you stopped at His death...then it isn't a good thing...

I'm sure that on that Friday, so many years ago, there were many hurting hearts.
An innocent man had been killed.
Mary's son was dead.
The disciples had lost a very good friend.
How were they to go to sleep that night?
How were they to get up the next day and face what was to come?
How were they to go on when their hearts were so heavy?

I can only imagine what it must have been like for the people left behind.
We know the end of the story ~ but put yourself in their shoes and wonder what it must have felt like to know that Jesus was dead....

Be sure to turn off my playlist below to watch the video...
And remember - His death is just part of the story.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but will have eternal life"  John 3:16
