good friday is a festival of isai religious. good morning Friday images provide best images for good Friday.
So in this season, this time in the Church year, we meditate on the Cross, we reflect on the Cross, and it’s interesting because from the very beginning of Christianity.
Here’s the power of God?
Completely humiliated, completely powerless, completely stripped that’s the power of God, died on a cross? The wisdom of God? How in the world is that wise? Paul recognised that that Cross would be a well it’s a sign a contradiction.
Jesus, it was prophesied that he would be a sign of contradiction by the prophet Simeon at the beginning of Luke’s Gospel, the onset of Jesus’s life. The Cross is always both out of place, and the Cross is still 100 per cent relevant.
You know, for the first centuries actually, I would say even millennia and a half or more of Christianity, the Cross is God’s answer for our sin, that here we are in justice we recognize that we’re sinners, that was separated from God, that we choose to say no to God, we decide to use each other,
we want to reject God, and we wish not to be the people God has called us to be, and the Cross is God’s answer for our sin. The Cross is with how God wins back our souls, because why? Because of injustice, we deserve not-God.

Injustice, if I said, “I don’t want you, God,” I deserve not to get God. I get that. Prejudice, I’m on trial, and that’s how Christians saw themselves, how people saw themselves like I’m on trial and yet, then the Son of God takes my place, and in that, he wins back my soul.
It’s remarkable, it’s true. It’s called vicarious atonement. Where instead of my suffering, Jesus is the vicarious atonement. He’s the one who suffers in my place.
I was on trial, God wins back my soul, but something interesting happened in the last, I don’t know, 100 plus, 200 years maybe and that thing is the way we saw ourselves, and God changed and how we saw ourselves is not ourselves being on trial, we looked around the world, and we saw all the sin in the world. We saw all the brokenness in the world. We saw the suffering in the world.
Now, it’s not any more sin, suffering, and brokenness than other people saw in previous years, previous ages. We saw it from a different lens, a different viewpoint. And our different lens, our different view was this:
God, if you are reasonable and if you are powerful, then you would remove all this suffering. God, if you were powerful, you would remove all this sin.
God, if you were perfect, you would take away our pain. And we come before God not with ourselves being on trial, but we place God on trial.

We put God on trial and say,
“How dare you not do anything in the face of suffering!”
“God, how dare you
not do anything in the face of my pain!”
And the crazy thing is this—the Cross is still the answer. The power of God and the wisdom of God is always the answer. Why? Because in ancient days,
when we saw ourselves as being on trial and the Cross is God’s answer. The Cross is how God wins back our soul when we place God on trial, and the Cross is still the answer because the Cross is how God wins our trust again. After all, he allows all that evil and all that suffering and all that pain to overwhelm him.
Image of Jesus on Cross not only sign of but also how much you love me. You win back my soul God, because I’m guilty, but it’s also, God, here’s how humble you are.
Here’s how powerful you are. Here’s how wise you are because you also let yourself be completely stripped, you made yourself be entirely overwhelmed by the suffering and the evil and the death in the world. Why?
That’s the God who knows my heartbreak,
that’s the God who knows our suffering.
That’s the God who wins back our trust.
When you look at Jesus on the Cross, you see a God you can trust. You know what? When I first thought of this or realized it, I guess, it got me mad. I was like man, stupid modern man. We’re so dumb.

I can’t believe we put God on trial. And then I read something from Pope Benedict XVI, and it was just like He recognized the same thing, and he said, And that’s good. It’s OK. And I was like, “What?!? What are you talking about Pope Benedict? How is that fine?”
He’s like, Because God is so good, he’s so powerful, and he’s so wise that the Cross is going to always be the answer for every question, for every challenge that we ever could bring before the Lord, the Cross will always be the answer.
And if a new question comes up in the next decade
or the next century or the following millennia, the Cross will still be God’s answer. The question of “What I do with my sin?”
The Cross is how God wins back my soul. The Cross is God’s answer to “God, can I trust you?”
God emptying himself on the Cross is how God wins back our trust. And if you have another question, I’m telling you the Cross will be the answer.
Because the Cross is God’s answer, and it is the power of God, and it is the wisdom of God, and it answers all questions. This Holy Week, this Good Friday, this life,
I invite you do not remove Christ on the Cross from your life Because you’ll always have a cross, will always have pain And if we remove Christ’s Cross from my life, I won’t have a cross, I’ll still have the pain, But I won’t have him.H old on to the Cross.
Let it be before your eyes every day. And let the power of God and the wisdom of God be the answer of God for all your questions. From all of here at Ascension Presents, my name’s Father Mike.
God bless you.

According to the Bible, the son of God was flogged, ordered to carry the cross on which he would be crucified and then put to death.
So despite its name, Christian holy day could be a day for sombre reflection. Each Friday before Easter, Christians solemnly honour the way Jesus suffered and died for his or her sins. they may attend a service that recounts Jesus’s painful crucifixion, and a few even refrain from eating to point out their sorrow.
No, you can not say Happy Good Friday because it’s not joyful day its day of when Jesus christ hanged.
No, its not a good friday but on this day jesus give a blessing.
on good friday mostly people not eating and talking fast.
