Friday of the Passion of the Lord (Good Friday) – 10 April 2020
Isaiah 52:13–53:12. Psalm 31:2, 6, 12-13, 15-16, 17, 25. Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:7-9. John 18:1–19:42.
Who Would Be So Obedient? Jesus would – even unto death! This high priest – the mediator between God and all humanity – is not remote. He is near. He is close. He is one like us in all things but sin. He knows what our lives are like. He teaches us that obedience to God is to do whatever it takes to be faithful. Therein lies our salvation – doing what it takes, rooted in God’s saving grace.
- Following this Good Friday, what good work will I do?
