Show Notes
On Good Friday we reflect on the day Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. // CALL TO WORSHIP What we wanted was simple: A political revolution The payment of our bills The fixing of our oh so mundane problems A genie and a self help book Eat Pray Love Instead He gave a cross Two unlikely pieces of wood And a man to hang there A crown of thorns The king of Jews With a kingdom unseen, untouched So quickly did we give Him up Still give Him up Abandoned the man who came to testify to the Truth A Truth that gets stuck in our throats Catches in our mouths We can barely comprehend it Struggle to say it Fail to believe it We heap blame With Stockholm syndrome we prefer our cage Like babies we are dependent on Him to feed us Yet used the breath He gave us to find Him superfluous But it is finished. Pierced feet, pierced hands The blood-stained son of man Who traded his perfection for our sin His righteousness for our selfishness And these two unlikely pieces of wood Become a symbol of his sacrifice A picture of what love looks like More painful than we can bare to witness So real it stirs our hearts within us It is that blood-stained son of man Who traded his perfection for our sin We have no need for genies. // Credits Call to Worship - Cassandra Fowler John 18:1-19:42 - Acacia Bergin Reflection on Good Friday - David MacKay "Kingdom's Kin" - written by Kaitlyn Kleffman Benediction - Wes Oaks music mixed & mastered by Alec Watson produced at edited by David MacKay
