Five Things to Do on Good Friday.

"Good Friday" is the name traditionally given to the day on which Christ died on the cross. For many
churches, Good Friday is marked by a worship service in a solemn and contrite manner in which sermons on the cross of Christ are preached.

However, if your congregation holds Maundy Thursday services instead--or doesn't hold either--here are a few things you might consider for your devotional life as we prepare for Resurrection Sunday. .
  • Listen to a recording the the Gospel accounts of the cross. The entire Bible is free in audio form on the ESV website. Here is the audio of Mark 15. (You may have to click to the "listen" button on the top).
    • Listen to a sermon on the cross of Christ. Here is mine from Matthew 27:15-23, detailing the release of Barabbas and the crucifixion of Jesus, entitled "The Exchange." 
    Hope you find some of these resources helpful!

    1. Thank you Matt for these suggestions. It will help us to remember the significance of this day and not treat it as just another Friday. Today think T.G.F.C.I.and not T.G.I.F. L.
