The good part of Good Friday is in Matthew 27:51: "the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom". This is a clear picture of what was happening in the heavenly realm. It illustrates that everyone now has full access to the Holy of Holies. We can come into God's presence at any time, all the time, in fact, right now! As the song says, "Just as I am, without one plea... I come."
On the cross, a great 'swap' took place; Jesus took our sin and we received His righteousness and His access into the presence of Father God. This was the best 'trade' anyone could ever make, and it was Father's idea!
Enjoy God's presence right now! (How? Start by praising Him.) Psalm 16:11 says, "In Your presence is fullness of joy..." He wants you to come to Him.
