Pseudorandom Bits

A backwater in the vast ocean of thought

  • Pseudorandom?

    The Web is made of bits. Here are some of my bits, added to those other bits. Bits of information, bits of my thoughts, bits of others' thoughts. Maybe they seem a bit random, but, who knows?

    "There must be some bits here somewhere."

Good Friday

Posted by Mike on March 20, 2008

Tomorrow is Good Friday, an important holiday in the Western Christian calendar. It isn’t as important as Easter, to be sure, but it is part of the observance of Jesus’ death, burial, and Resurrection as payment for our sins.

As a young boy, I wondered what the “good” part was of “Good Friday”. How could death be good? I didn’t understand at the time, didn’t ask, and didn’t try to find out. My mistake.

The good is that the Son of God died as punishment for our sins, so that we could accept His Gift of grace and have eternal life with God in Heaven. It isn’t automatic. It is a deliberate and personal choice for us to make.

Some verses to consider are:

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6 (NASB)

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 (NASB)

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Mark 8:36

A fuller presentation of the Gospel may be found here as well as many other web sites. There are many books, too. And of course, you could always read the Bible!
