On Palm Sunday at church I invited people to write on a graffiti wall that was set up with the words, “What’s So Good About Good Friday?”
It’s an interesting question because on the surface there’s not much good about the idea of an innocent man dying a violent death on a Roman cross. In fact, you could argue that there’s nothing good about Good Friday at all.
But Good Friday isn’t just about a bad event that occurred a couple of thousand years ago. In fact it was an event that changed history completely. In his death, Jesus paid the debt that was owed by all of humanity for our rebellion against God. It was an extraordinary event that made it possible for individuals to receive forgiveness for sin and to live at peace with God.
Of course, the outcome of what Jesus did only makes a difference if we are willing to accept what he has done for us.
Check out the video which shows our graffiti wall and if you live in the High Wycombe area (in Western Australia) why not drop into Maida Vale Baptist Church, 24 Edney Road, High Wycombe at 9.30am on either Good Friday or Easter Sunday. We’d love to see you.
