Good Friday: When Darkness Reigned
The passage that haunted me all week: “But this is your hour—when darkness reigns” (Luke 22:53). I knew going into this sermon I could do no joking around because there is nothing funny about anything that happened when the darkness took over. I decided to begin the sermon without introduction, just read the scripture and start working my way through the darkest day of Jesus’ life. I thought the video we showed of the Jesus Painter captured well the somber occasion. (If you missed it you can watch it by clicking this link: The Last Painting.)
Thank God he has shown us that just because our Lower Story life might be full of sin, pain and sorrow his Upper Story plan has broken into the darkness! Because of the work God did through Jesus on the cross we now have hope. Thank you Jesus! What a Savior!
