“When the sixth hour came, darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour” (Mark 15:33).

When the very best of God is pitted against the very worst of man, ascribing to the day of Jesus’ crucifixion the commemorative title, Good Friday, seems conflicting. That is, until you remember that it became Good Friday only because the church had the knowledge of resurrection Sunday. Let us always be mindful that the bleakness of any circumstance, like the blackness of that Friday afternoon, eventually gives way to the light of resurrected hope.
