It is a God Friday

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: April 15, 2022

Reflections of Good Friday…

A dying man.
A cross of wood.
A jeering crowd.
A grieving mom.

A son eclipsed from view.
A holy Father shuts His eyes.
Two thieves emit their dying sighs.
Eleven grieving friends look on
in disbelief and fear.

But on this dark and dismal day
we hear the suffering Savior say
“Tetelestai (your debt is paid).
Redeemed, you’ve been set free.”

God’s Friday is indeed quite good.
A thoughtful glance beneath the hood
reveals the engine of our hope.
Atonement. Peace with God.
