Significance of Good Friday
On Good Friday we remember the day Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sin. Good Friday marks the day when wrath and mercy met at the cross.
In order for the good news of the gospel to have meaning for us, we first have to understand the bad news of our condition as sinful people under condemnation. The good news of deliverance only makes sense once we see how we are enslaved. Another way of saying this is that it is important to understand and distinguish between law and gospel in Scripture. We need the law first to show us how hopeless our condition is; then the gospel of Jesus’ grace comes and brings us relief and salvation.
