Why is Good Friday “Good”?
Good Friday is all about Saying “No” to Opportunities.
We say “No” to more and more opportunities every day.
Whether those opportunities are for our spiritual well-being or for our intellectual & physical improvement, we just say “No”.
But should we?
The Sanhedrin Court said “No” to Christ because He was not what they expected the Messiah would be.
Pontius Pilate said “No” to Christ because he didn’t want to go against the crowd.
How many times do we say “No” to Christ-given opportunities because they demand too much of a sacrifice?
