Welcome to our Good Friday online service when we will be taking John Ch 19 for our devotions.
Call to Worship:
We are the ones who strayed away like sheep! We who left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet God laid on Him the guilt and sins of every one of us”. Isaiah Ch 53 v6
Today as we think of Christ and his suffering and death on the cross in our Good Friday devotional, we stand on holy ground. Pray we may remember who he is and what he has done for us. Pray we offer our worship in deep gratitude and trust.
John Ch 19 v1-15 (page 1087 NIV)
John Ch 19 v16-27 (page 1088 NIV)
John Ch 19 v28-37 (page 1088 NIV)
Listen to: The Power of the Cross: Kirsty with Theresa, Margaret and Ian
John Ch 19 v38-42 (page 1088 NIV)
Pray over what you have sung and heard. Remind yourself of the worldwide church today on earth which by faith and grace we belong to, who also have been giving thanks for Jesus sacrifice on the cross. Pray for all in this Pandemic who feel alone and are suffering. Give thanks for the medical and caring ministry going on in hospitals and community. Pray that there will be those who will come to a living faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
May you find in the cross a sure ground for faith, a firm support for hope, and the assurance of sins forgiven. And may the blessing of God go with you, now and forevermore. Amen
