Join us for Good Friday worship on Friday, March 30 at 6:30 PM.
What is Good Friday?
Good Friday sets up for us the miracle of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday. About one-third of each of the four Gospels in the Bible (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) describes the last week of Jesus’ life. Our attention is drawn to his death on a cross. There on the cross you see the character, nature, heart and mind of God.
God died! Now we know the justice of God. He said sin must be paid for. There, on the cross, God himself paid the penalty for our sin.
God died! Now we know the love of God. Rather than punishing us, he bore the pain himself.
God died! Now we know the will of God. From eternity he planned to save the world through this sacrifice. And on that cross he accomplished his eternal purpose.
What will Good Friday service be like at Victory of the Lamb?
Through songs, scripture, and sermon…our Good Friday service highlights the depth of our Savior’s love for the world–all sinners, including us. Good Friday is at the heart of Christianity where we see at the cross of Jesus both God’s holy justice and perfect love on display. The cross is also our guarantee that God can take the worst things ever, and make them work out for our ultimate good!
