Dear Faith Family,
Today is Good Friday!
But, why do we call it good? I mean, shouldn’t we call it “Bad Friday” or “Sad Friday”? After all, it was on Good Friday that Jesus experienced his greatest suffering!
Good Friday was the day that the crowds screamed, “Crucify Him”. It was on Friday that Jesus was beaten and a twisted crown of thorns was placed on his head! It was on Friday that Jesus’ hands and feet were nailed to a cross. It was on Friday that Jesus died and his broken body was placed in a grave!
So, what makes it a good Friday?
Well, Good Friday was good because of what Christ’s death accomplished! In 1 Peter 2:24, Peter writes, “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.”
What makes Good Friday so good is that the death we deserved was paid for by the blood of Christ! It was our sin that led Jesus to the cross! He paid our ransom through his death. God’s just judgement was satisfied in him! This is a sobering thought to consider, but one that we must not forget!
Therefore, I want to invite you to join us tonight for our Good Friday service at 6:30 PM in the Worship Center. We will take time to share the Lord’s Supper together and then Rob Hartland will walk us through the events of Good Friday!
But, Good Friday is just part of the story! We have much to celebrate on Easter Sunday and I hope you will plan to join us! We will have two identical services on Sunday at 9 AM and 10:45 AM. We encourage you to invite your family and friends to celebrate our risen Savior!
I can’t wait to worship with you this weekend!
You are loved!
