Today is Good Friday.
Today at Kendall-Whittier we wear black. Not because of Jesus. But because we support our teachers. The color black often has a negative connotation. Representing fear. Unknown. Death and Evil. Today it represents good. Our teachers.
But to us teachers that are Christians, today is much more. Today is Good Friday. It is not about striking or school closures, but about something much bigger.
As a child, I always wondered what’s so good about it? Why would anyone call it a “Good” Friday? It’s the day Jesus suffered a cruel and painful death!
Good Friday represents the sacrifice, the crucifixion, and death of Jesus Christ. The term Good Friday derives itself from the term God’s Friday. The good in it comes from the tremendous good that came out of it. The victory over death and sin.
Monday we may march as teachers united in our beliefs in being valued. But today we honor our beliefs in Jesus Christ. A teacher himself who died on this day for our sins.
And Sunday we rejoice and celebrate his victory over death and sin.
Let’s all follow the great teacher himself, Jesus. Let’s not let this time of striking interfere with this Holy Week and all its significant meaning. Let’s take time to truly thank Jesus for all he did to make this day, this Good Friday, the day that made the victory over the Resurrection possible.
Happy Good Friday! 🕇
He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness, by his wounds you have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24
In His Love,
