Message: “Why this Friday is Good” from The Rev. Dr. Kristine Blaess

Why this Friday is Good

In Jesus, God’s flesh was nailed to the cross. He refused to come down, he refused to come away, he refused to forsake his love for his people even though it meant submitting to death on the cross. This cross is precisely where forsakenness comes to its climax. And it is also precisely where God’s absence ends. God has made his home with us. On the cross, Jesus takes upon himself all of the brokenness of the world. “Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; He was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities.” He takes them from us, and he stays with us, to never leave us or forsake us.
