Good Friday


How can we call good
This innocent man
Torn to pieces
Broken, bloodied
Stabbed
Suffocating?

What can possibly be good
About God's only Son
Spit on, slandered
Lied about, whipped
Denied
Humiliated?

It's
God
Keeping His Promise
Rending His Sacrifice
Confirming His Blood Covenant
With
Us.

What He didn't require of Abraham,
He required of Himself.
The breathless final words --
It is Finished.
The veil torn in two,
So we could enter
The Most Holy Place,
So we could be called
Children of God.

Praise Him,
That
is Good!
