First, we reflect on the death of the Lord’s anointed, as prophesied by Isaiah. We ponder His last words that echo the Psalms in hope. We follow Him on the way of the cross.
Next, we recognise Christ’s death as His conquest over the powers of darkness. Throughout the whole journey, Christ is the powerful One. The Good Friday service is a victory celebration that focuses on Jesus’ weapon, the Holy Cross!
Through Jesus, we are victorious in the battlefield of human misery. He has gained for us access to the throne of God! We can now bring our needs and those of the world to our Father.
