You’re not alone; many folks, including both old and new Christians, have wondered at this seemingly oxymoron. How can a time so terrible to us, be tied to the word "good."
Well, to put it in my own words, that fateful Friday was the opening curtain to a dishonest, envious trial, followed by crucifixion, death, burial, and Resurrection of an innocent--Jesus Christ.
And it's on those events that Christianity lives. If you can, imagine one man dying as a sacrifice, in place of every person who ever lived, or would live in this future. With that, you have the reason Jesus came to earth as a baby, and lived 33 years so He could share and sympathize with each of us, on every level. His life and those 40 days during which He experienced every aspect of our sinful lives--the period we know as the "temptation of Jesus" by the devil (Matt. 4:1-11). Satan tried three ways to tempt Jesus, but in each, Jesus quoted from the book of Deuteronomy: "People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God--Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God--and Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve."
If you're like me, it seems there should have been a better choice of words than "good," although the sequence was for our good, if we accept His living sacrifice for us. Now, each of us should show our appreciation by giving our lives to Him. It's the least--and the most--we can do.
