Good Friday commemorates a day like no other – the day Jesus Christ was falsely accused, tried, beaten, and died on the cruelest instrument of torture the Roman army could devise – a cross. It’s the day when Jesus died for our sins so we could be forgiven, and adopted into God’s family.
For Christians, Good Friday is a crucial day of the year because it celebrates what we believe to be the most momentous weekend in the history of the world. Ever since Jesus died and was raised, Christians have proclaimed the cross and resurrection of Jesus to be the decisive turning point for all creation. Paul considered it to be “of first importance” that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and was raised to life on the third day, all in accordance with what God had promised all along in the Scriptures (1 Cor. 15:3-4).
On Good Friday, we remember the day Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, which absorbed all of God’s wrath, removed the law, the curse of Adam and appeased God’s anger by his sacrifice in our place toward those who have faith in Christ alone for their salvation. It is followed by Easter, the glorious celebration of the day Jesus was raised from the dead, heralding his victory over sin and death and pointing ahead to a future resurrection for all who are united to him by faith (Rom. 6:5).
Join us on Friday, March 30th, beginning at 6pm at Missio Dei Church’s building for a night of reflection, prayer, and worship. We will share a meal together, hear the scriptures read, sing the gospel, and hear the Passover explained and celebrate Christ’s victory over all sin comprising of the devil, the flesh, and the world by His death on the cross.
Join us at: 621 White Station Rd | Memphis, TN 38117 | March 30th at 6pm.
