GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE

Reflections on the Cross

4-6-07

1. The cross was not an accident; it was necessary. Mk 10:32-34

        Cannot reduce Jesus to teacher and example…

  • We’re slaves who need to be redeemed.
  • We’re enemies who need reconciliation.
  • We’re corpses that need to be resurrected.
  • We’re criminals who need to be justified.

2. The cross makes the Christian faith utterly unique.

        Cary taking a religion class at school…

        Hinduism                 - Karma

        Buddhism                - Eightfold Path

        Islam                - submitting to Allah

        Judaism           - obey the laws; follow the ritual

        Christian          - what Christ did for us

        Self-effort, self-focus, works vs. grace

Romans 3:20-28

Romans 6:1-4

God, in Jesus, says, “I love you this much. Will you love me back?”
