Good Friday, also known as “Holy Friday,” is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus was crucified. The Christians honour and memorize the event, passion and suffering through which Jesus went through. It is one of the most auspicious days for us.
Till date, many of us still wonder why the day is called ‘Good’ when it should have rather been called a sad/bad day; as it marks the ‘death’ of Christ. However, the results of Christ’s death are very good. God had the last word through Christ’s death and people were, actually, redeemed by the death of Jesus. This is why it is good about this day.
The Bible says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”(First Peter 3:18)
On this day, although not mandatory, it is appropriate to wear ‘black’ to Church to show respect and mark the death of Jesus Christ.
Many Christian churches celebrate Good Friday with a subdued service, usually in the evening, in which Christ’s death is remembered with solemn hymns, prayers of thanksgiving, a message centred on Christ suffering for our sake, and observance of the Lord’s Supper. Whether or not Christians choose to “celebrate” Good Friday, the events of that day should be ever on our minds because the death of Christ on the cross is the paramount event of the Christian faith.
