Good Friday

Good Friday may appear to be the wrong title for the day Christians around the world remember the day our Savior, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for the sins of His people. It is because of His good act, being the perfect Lamb of God being scarified for sinners such as myself that makes it ‘good’. Christ paid a debt that sinners could never repay. In the courts of the Creator God, we were all declared guilty and we desperately needed a savior.

Into the appointed moment of history a baby named Jesus was born. A baby who grew to be a man and lived His life in perfect adherence to the Law.

I highly recommend you read all the Gospel accounts of the Crucifixion.

  • Matthew ch. 26 & 27
  • Mark ch.15
  • Luke ch. 22 & 23
  • John ch.18 & 19

He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised,
and we esteemed him not.
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushes for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.

Isaiah 53:3-5

This year my meditation song is The Power of the Cross by Keith and Kristen Getty
