We commemorate Jesus' death as a common criminal on Good Friday. Kind of weird that we call it Good. ... but, of course, the point is what happened on the following Sunday.... he came back from the dead, which means we could define that (this) Friday as WONDERFUL.
That's how life is. Awfulness happens. But like a tapestry where we only see the back side - with the gnarly knots and the loops and ugliness, when we turn it over it is beautiful.
I'm a fan of Lee Strobel, a former atheist turned follower of Christ.
Click HERE for his website called Lee Strobel, Investigating Faith, Find Answers to Your Faith Questions.
He's written some great books, A CASE FOR FAITH, A CASE FOR CHRIST, and others.
Anyway, I'm linking you to his site because, well, I wanted to!
Have a great day!
