ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, who of thy tender mercy didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the Cross for our redemption; who made there (by his one oblation of himself once offered) a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction, for the sins of the whole world
The cross made these words true. In the darkness of the cross and tomb, we must remember that today is Good Friday. It is good because Jesus redeemed us on the cross and freed us for an eternal, resurrected life in the new creation with him. Thanks be to God!
