It’s easy to turn Good Friday into Bad Friday. We can meditate so much on Christ’s sufferings and our sins that caused them, that we end up feeling extra guilty rather than extra-Gospelly. We feel so bad that Jesus had to suffer for us that we end up feeling bad and suffering ourselves. We spend so much time in the dark that we don’t want to see the light. That mutates Good Friday into Bad Friday. How do we see the light of the cross in the darkness of the cross? How do we increase our spiritual satisfaction during Easter? Isaiah 53:10-12 points us to the answer.
