Good Friday: Celebration of the Lord’s Passion

Isaiah 52:13-53:12; Ps 31; Hebrews 4:14-16, 5:7-9; John 18:1-19:42

Ultimately, it is our own behaviour that sentences all of us. Do I really grasp how great is my need for God’s mercy and forgiveness? Seating myself on the chair of judgment, I look to Jesus to speak for me, ask him to release me from my sin.
