A Good & Hard Good Friday
Good Friday is good because it interrupts our weekly liturgy reminding us of the bounty of grace won for us at the cross.
Good Friday is hard because it reminds us of the sheer innocence of a spotless Lamb who meets utter horror—Jesus slain for our sins.
Goodness, Jesus is worth pausing to adore on Good Friday as we move toward the great hope of Easter Sunday. After all, we can’t have one without the other.
