very year we contemplate the events that surround the crucifixion of Jesus… and every year we’re left wondering, “What is good about Good Friday?”
Christ asks nothing more from us than what He modeled in the Garden – a loving heart that is fully submitted and surrendered to the heart of our Heavenly Father. That heart posture will truly lead to doing loving acts on behalf of others.
