I come back to the words that were prophesied by Isaiah about 730 years before Jesus fulfilled them:

“But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins.  He was beaten so we could be whole, He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.  We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all.” Is. 53: 5, 6

That is why I call today Good Friday. It was God’s idea to bring us back to him by having Jesus take our place on a cross.

How about you?
