Prelude

Chiming of the Hour

Call to Worship Josh Kemp
Come, let us gather again in the shadow of the Cross of Christ.
We gather to remember the overwhelming evidence of Love’s ultimate sacrifice.
Who would have guessed that the height and depth, the length and width of God’s love might look like this: a forsaken savior on a cross?
Certainly not us. Not us, who are too often lost amid the world’s distractions and responsibilities. Not us, for whom such love was offered without cost.
Let us gather again in the shadow of the Cross of Christ and commit ourselves to remember the price paid. Let us live our lives in a way that indicates why this Friday is called “Good.”
Thanks be to God, who opened the gates of heaven, that we might have the faith, hope, and love, witnessed in Christ’s sacrifice for our salvation.

WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT GOOD FRIDAY?

Good Friday is “good” because as terrible as that day was, it had to happen for us to receive the joy of Easter. The wrath of God against sin had to be poured out on Jesus, the perfect sacrificial substitute, in order for forgiveness and salvation to be poured out to the nations. Without that awful day of suffering, sorrow, and shed blood at the cross, God could not be both “just and the justifier” of those who trust in Jesus (Romans 3:25). Paradoxically, the day that seemed to be the greatest triumph of evil was actually the death-blow in God’s gloriously good plan to redeem the world from bondage.
