Today is Good Friday. Today is the day in history where we remember the horrible agony our Savior went through for us. He was beaten, mocked, crucified. But he willing lay down his life, he gave up his spirit, so that we could be forgiven and receive eternal life. His perfect life given to pay the price for our sins.
It must have been a terrible day for his followers, disciples, mother, to see their loved one abused so. So today, we remember and mourn. But we know the rest of the story, so we don't have to be devastated. He rises up 2 days later (on the 3rd day), just as he said he would. And he continues to live and reign...forever!
Yes, it is Good Friday. But Sunday's coming!
