...Then Speak Him

Good Friday is THE most pivotal day in history. It changed everything, turning the world upside down. To help you explain this to the next generation, be sure to listen to this week’s podcast to get your thoughts going. Then “Speak Him” friend!

Romans 6:23
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 


God, what are you saying to me through this Scripture?

The bad news is that the “paycheck” we deserve for our sin is death. However, God loves us so much that, on the most important day in history, He did something extremely important to give us good news. On a “bad” Friday over 2,000 years ago, Jesus took the “wages” of our sin and died in our place. He willingly suffered for our good, so we can have life. This is what makes Good Friday so good! ~ What wages does sin pay? What is God’s “Good News”? How does that make a “bad” Friday into a “Good Friday”?


God, why does this matter?

Sin’s wages of death is one each of us must cash, but Jesus took that paycheck to the bank of the cross, cashed it for us and offers us the gift of “eternal life” instead. This changes our bad story into a really good one, as a very bad day brought us the very best gift! ~ Why would Jesus take our paycheck of death? What does He give us in its place? When someone offers you a gift, what must you do? Why does this matter?


God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

Each of the Gospels (Matthew 27, Mark 14-15, Luke 23, John 18-19) tells of the most pivotal day in history, Good Friday. Jesus didn’t wait until we could make ourselves into “good,” sinless people (which we can’t do anyway). On Good Friday, “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8) – and not just some of us, but ALL of us. ~ Would you die for a “bad” person? Why would Jesus die for us? How does it feel to know that God loves you so much that He didn’t wait for you to be “good enough” to help you? Let’s read about Good Friday in one of the Gospels!


God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

We worship God by receiving the gift He died to give us. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 ESV). Good Friday is good because on that day God took our death wages and gave us the gift of eternal life in Jesus. ~ Do you believe this? Have you received Jesus’ gift of salvation? What does Romans 10:13 tell us about how to do that? What is one reason you can celebrate the goodness of Good Friday this year?

Romans 6:23
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
