Good Friday is ‘good’ because…
…Jesus was my substitute there upon that blood-stained tree
…Jesus wore the crown of thorns that I might wear the crown of life
…Jesus was scourged that I might be healed
…Jesus was condemned that I might be pardoned
…Jesus was abandoned that I might be accepted
…Jesus was made to be sin that I might be declared and ultimately made righteous
…Jesus pleased the Father whom I had angered
…Jesus tasted death that I may never taste it
…Jesus drank wrath that I might drink the waters of life
…Jesus died that I may live
…Jesus was shamed for my shameful sin
…Jesus was showered with judgment he did not deserve that I might be showered with the grace that I do not deserve
…Jesus distinguished himself as the exclusive basis for divine forgiveness
…Jesus purchased eternal redemption through his eternal sacrifice to pay my eternal debt
…Jesus crushed the serpent’s head (he defeated the devil)
…Jesus pleased the Father
…Jesus vindicated the glory of God
…Jesus put the attributes of God on full display singing in beautiful harmony (justice, love, wrath, forgiveness, holiness, mercy…)
…Good Friday is good because I am so bad

….and Good Friday is only good because the Savior, our Lord Jesus is so good
