Good Friday Devotional
Good Friday Devotional (Worship at Trinity, 4pm Family Service, 7:30pm Tenebrae)
It would be hard to understand Good Friday if one had never had a dark night of the soul. One of those instances when you truly wonder, “has God forsaken me.” Or perhaps that dark night was when you realized you were the one who had forsaken another? When all seems lost, hope seems dark and life has seemingly come to a screeching halt.
This forsakenness is the reality of the cross. God’s own son, nailed to a tree, dying for us, for all our brokenness and sin. God here revealed, on full display in the forsaken person of the cross, in full solidarity with our darkness and our loss. The one who cries out the opening lines of Psalm 22 is one who knows are grief our shame and our loss. Yet he is also the one who in the end can say “Into your hands I commend my spirit” and ultimately “It is finished.” Oh that we might, in our moments of darkness and despair, be granted the faith to proclaim the closing lines of the Psalm, that indeed it is accomplished, God’s deliverance is complete.
“future generations will be told about the Lord, and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, saying that he has done it.” (Psalm 22)
