Good Friday is the day that we remember Christ's death on the cross. On that day, Jesus bore the sin for all who would believe (1 Peter 2:24). For the disciples, they were without hope on that day. They saw the Messiah arrested, tried, nailed to a cross, and die. It was a dark day for them.
Why is Good Friday referred to as “good”? What the Jewish authorities and Romans did to Jesus was definitely not good (see Matthew chapters 26-27). However, the results of Christ’s death are very good! Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” First Peter 3:18 tells us, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”
We will have two Good Friday services this year, at 6:30 PM & 7:30 PM. We are thankful that we can meet together this year after having a virtual Good Friday service last year. During this service, we will observe the Lord's Supper together as we remember the love Jesus showed us on the cross.
