As he died for our sins......

Hi, Somu! Hi

Good refers to holly. As Martin has mentioned, it resembles the day when Jesus died in order to cleanse our sins and let people live forever, just as God had in mind when creating human beings - referenced in John 16:3: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.".

While in the Bible there is no reference about Jesus dying on a cross (which was a symbol inserted later) but on a piece of timber, his death is highly relevant for Christians, and having faith in such sacrifice and gift from God implies not only believing but also acting accordingly, just as Jesus' life is reflected in the Gospels.

I hope Martin's answer helps you clear your question out! Wink
