Lenten Devotional: Good Friday, March 30


The Prophets and Passion Week: Light turns to darkness

Isaiah 53:12 • . . . because he poured out himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressor; yet he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

How can the day when Jesus died be called Good Friday? The events that occurred are not good, but they serve God’s good purpose.

As we journey during Lent, Good Friday does not mark the end, but the beginning, for in his death we are granted the life that we always desired. We rely completely upon God’s willingness and ability to set us free from the bondage of sin, free to live a life of love and grace. Be set free by Jesus today, now and forever.

Lord, as Lent ends, may your love never come to a close. Amen.
