Five Minute Friday. The word today is Good.
When I saw the prompt, I began to think of Good Friday. There is a beautiful song with the above lyric in the song. When He Was On The Cross I Was On His Mind. I have always wondered why the Friday before Easter was called Good Friday. I found out after a little research that I am not the only one asking the question. There is an article on “What Is Good Friday/Holy Friday.” The scripture Mark 9:31 says,
“For he taught his disciples, and said to them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.” Mark 10:34 says, “And they shall mock him, and shall whip him, and shall spit on him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.”
The word is good. God said it was good when He created the earth. I know that He loved Jesus. Jesus is Good. Because Jesus was willing to die on the cross and cry out , It is finished. I have a good life. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice. Because when you were on the cross I was on your mind.
