Good Friday

HEM asked me today why it's "Good" Friday? It wasn't "good" for Jesus. I replied to her that it was good for us though. Maybe it's not the deed to think of as good on this day, but the person that made it good, Jesus. I looked up "good" in the dictionary and I would certainly attribute many of these meanings to Jesus. Here are a few:
morally excellent
of high quality
not spoiled or tainted

This is what made Jesus the perfect sacrifice for us. He was the One that could take on our sin because He had no sin. Maybe if I visualized His journey to the cross more frequently, I would examine my daily behaviors more closely. Thank you, Jesus, for dying for me.
