For some 2000 years Christians the world over have commemorated this day. It may seem odd to celebrate the humiliating death of the founder of one’s faith, but for all who follow Jesus, we recognize that His death was for us. Good Friday isn’t good because a good man died a brutal death; it’s good because the sinless Son of God died on behalf of us sinners.
While this season brings its challenges and cancellations – Good Friday still stands in the heart of the average saint as a day to commemorate the love of God for us while we were yet sinners, and the immensity of the sacrifice Jesus made for us so that we might have both forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
We’re going to talk through some reflections on Good Friday, consider some ways we can celebrate this day in our homes, and discuss what difference Good Friday makes in our present age.
