Is there Good in "Good" Friday?

​​​1 Corinthians 2:1-2 (NIV) 
When I came to you, brothers,
I did not come with eloquence
or superior wisdom as I proclaimed
to you the testimony about God.
For I resolved to know nothing while
I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
 
Paul, Jesus' main Apostle of the New Testament, had a method
of preaching and "attracting" people to God, Jesus, and the Church.
 
It was the message of the Cross.

 

Galatians 2:20 
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live;
yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life
which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith
of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave
himself for me.

 

It was not that the church was soooo cool!
It was not that the pastor was soooo cool!
It was not that the praise team were rock stars!
It was not that some famous people were part of the congregation,
and the others were very smart and wealthy professionals, and
the rest were just very "groovey"!
 
It was that Jesus gave Himself for each one of us,
suffering beyond human comprehension,
was rejected by society, was made a curse,
was crucified openly and shamefully, and even
went into hell itself - ALL ON OUR BEHALF!
 
To rid us of our sins, to gain our justification, and
to secure our adoption by God as sons and daughters,
and to gift us Eternal Life - all exactly according to
the prophetic Scriptures.
 
THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT!!
 
All the other stuff ---- IT IS NOT ABOUT!!
 
Enjoy His Pure Precious Gift of Love & Salvation
