Inspiring Good Friday Quotes and Sayings
Why Do We Celebrate Good Friday?
I’ll admit, Good Friday has not always been my favorite day to observe or celebrate. We take time to remember the way that Christ died on the cross and the pain that He endured that day. But I believe the Lord would have us view this day in light of the complete work that He did. After all, it was His choice to hang there that day, He gave himself willingly, and all for us! In the light of Easter Sunday morning and a risen Savior, Good Friday is good! It is a beautiful remembrance of the love that was shown for us that day!
We’ve put together some of our favorite verses and Good Friday quotes to reflect on as we remember the sacrifice that Jesus gave on Good Friday. Meditate on these words and let them bring thankfulness to your heart and peace to your mind as you think of the great love of our Father. We pray that this year, as it is different from past seasons of Easter, would lead you closer to the cross and the finished works of Jesus Christ that were paid for there. We serve a wonderful God who is full of hope and peace and joy and life! Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice so that we could be united with our Father!
God proved His love on the cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, "I love you."
Mike McKinley, Passion
On the cross the Lord hung in the darkness so that we can live in eternal light with him.
Bible, Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Bible, Isaiah 53:5
But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His stripes we are healed.
He knew the price of those sins was death. He knew the source of those sins was you and since He couldn’t bear the thought of eternity without you, he chose the nails.
Bible, Romans 6:14
For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.
Because of the finished work of Jesus, God cannot see you separate from the finished work of Christ.
Bible, John 11:25-26
Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.'
What wondrous love is this, that caused the Lord of Life to lay aside his crown?
For nothing good have I whereby Thy grace to claim – I’ll wash my garments white in the blood of Calvary’s Lamb. Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain – He washed is white as snow.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow – Because He lives, all fear is gone – because I know He holds the future – And life is worth the living – Just because He lives.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life –
I know that it is finished.
