Today the day of ‘Good Friday ‘. On that Friday (the day when Jesus crucified) people standing near the cross and watch Jesus died. They might not call it ‘good’ Friday if asked. The greatest man of history was murdered and crucified on this day.
The day was a day of victory for the enemy of Jesus. For soldiers it was another day of work as usual; for the followers, it was a day of disappointment, loss of trust and a death day of their hope. That’s why many of them might not have called the day as ‘good.’
If the resurrection Sunday haven’t come then, we might also observe the day as Bad or inauspicious Friday. But God had the victory over the death from the grave.
Author Herbert Schlossberg in his book ‘Idol for Destruction,’ writes that ‘we are neither god’s of history, nor control over the incident of the past. But we know that history has a God and He controls all the incident of the past. if we look carefully and analyze we will able to know that God fulfills His work through whatever happened like; captivity crucified death. By analyzing the historical incidents described in the Bible, we will know that all the incidents are God’s victory incidents. but merely an event in the sight of the human.
The everyday lives a life of trust in God in the journey of your life. Remember that, many times victory of God comes to us in the form of defeat.
Let us not observe Good Friday as an event. But trust in Jesus with all your heart and commemorate the incident as salvation day for all. The day when Jesus died on the cross at Golgotha for us, He cleansed all our sin with the blood.
“And when they came to the place which is called Skull, there they crucified him, and malefactors, one on the right hand, the other on the left.” – Luke 23:33
