Good Friday (for who though?)

I recently came across this quote and it made me think about how I celebrate this Passion Week. Yes, I’ll celebrate Good Friday, but for whom was it really good?

Corrie Ten Boom put it like this:

“In the forest fire, there is always one place where the fire cannot reach. It is the place where the fire has already burned itself out. Calvary is the place where the fire of God’s judgment against sin burned itself out completely. It is there that we are safe.”

Good Friday is good for any who place their faith in the One, Jesus, who took the fiery wrath of God in our place.
