Michael Ramsden recounts his own dramatic near-death rescue to help us understand what makes Good Friday so “good.”
The main challenge of course is if we have a superficial diagnosis, we will always apply a superficial remedy.
And so the ultimate question is what has ultimately gone wrong in this world? And the answer runs far deeper and goes much further than many of us dare or care to admit.
There’s a form of social alienation, spiritual alienation, vocational alienation, ecological alienation, and also vocational alienation. At every single level, things suddenly get harder. The whole fabric of reality has been affected. That’s the depth of the problem.
Good Friday is good, not because we were good, not because of any righteous thing we had done. Good Friday is good because of what he has done.
When we repent and turn to Christ, we find that new life. I hope you’ll find it.
Let us know:
Have you ever had someone rescue you from a serious injury or even possible death? What was it like to be rescued like that?
What keeps you from repenting and turning to Christ, to know the new life that he gives us?
