Five Minute Friday: Good

Good, the adjective

“to be desired or approved of
Having the qualities required for a particular role
Appropriate to a particular purpose”

Its synonyms:

Fitting, the adjective
Defined as “Suitable or appropriate under the circumstances”

“For it was fitting for Him, for Whom are all things and by Whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.”

It was fitting, good, appropriate, suitable for God, the one for Whom all things exist and by Whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory – this includes you and I, to make Jesus, the captain of our salvation perfect through sufferings.

Hear Isaiah

He is despised and rejected by men…. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities. He was oppressed and he was afflicted…. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him. He put him to grief

For me, for us.

  1. The depth of His suffering for me, for us, is more than I can comprehend at times. What sacrificial love!

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. I love this (and so much of your writing!). It makes me think of the scripture that says “He is just and the justifier….”. Someone had to pay the price in order for God to be just… What a plan! What a God! Thanks for your insight. Easter blessings to you.

  3. “What a plan! What a God!” You said a lot in just a few words, Lisa. Thanks for your comments and Easter Blessings. I hope yours is joy filled.
