Why "Good" Friday ???

Why is Good Friday called “good”? What the Jewish authorities and Romans (and we ourselves, being sinful creatures- because He died for everyone!) did to Jesus was definitely not good !- in fact it was the most excruciatingly horrible death sentence handed down in that day! (see Matthew 26-27). However, the results of Christ’s death are very good! Awesome is a better word, I think....Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” 1 Peter 3:18, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was sinless- but He took our sins upon Himself- took the punishment we deserve, and made it so that we can be forgiven...God looks at us through the eyes of Jesus and our sins are paid for- we go free! And the even more amazing part of it all? All you have to do is receive it and believe it! Have a great Friday!
