THE WEEK THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
DAY 6: HOLY/GOOD FRIDAY
Today is Passion or Holy Friday! It is generally celebrated as Good Friday. This is the Friday before Easter when Christians all over the world mark the day of the crucifixion of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
Christians remember this day because the Lord Jesus was put to death for our sins, placed in a grave with those who were evil, and buried with the rich, even though He never committed a crime or told a lie. His death was a sacrifice to bring forgiveness. He willingly gave His life that we might be forgiven of our sins.
The name Good Friday seems like an incorrect or unsuitable name since it commemorates the Lord Jesus’ death. It was a good day, however, in the sense that Christ provided atonement for our sins when He died.
