What’s so “good” about a Good Friday in the middle of a worldwide pandemic? The answer is everything. In a time where hope is in short supply, Good Friday offers the hope of redemption, salvation, and life as God intended it. The people of the first century were no strangers to disease and sickness. It was a constant companion, only they lacked the medical care and facilities we have today. There were no ventilators, only the breath of life provided by the spirit of God.
There were few doctors, but Jesus, the great physician, healed many with a word or a touch. People saw Jesus not only as an eternal Savior but also as one who could deliver them from their day-to-day troubles. Everything He did was good, and everyone He touched was restored. And then they killed Him.
