GOOD FRIDAY SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

''Christ died for us.'' Two thousand years ago, outside the city of Jerusalem, at a place called Calvary, a man named Jesus died on a cross. It was actually the day God died. The cross was in the heart of God from all eternity. In Revelation 13:8 the Bible says that the Lord Jesus was the lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Before the world was created...

Today we are gathered at what for centuries has been called: Good Friday. Good Friday is just one of a string of events that fill of the greatest week in the Universe since Creation. These are: The Momentous Events of Passion Week...

From the book of Genesis all the way through Revelation, blood is a major part of the picture. In Genesis 3, we find God making the FIRST sacrifice. when Adam and Eve sinned, God sacrificed an animal to provide skins to cover their nakedness. And in the New Testament we're told of the blood of Jesus the LAST sacrifice - offered by God to cover the nakedness of our sin...

Psalm 22 is one of the great messianic psalms. Those who deny the inspiration of the Bible or the deity of Christ try hard to rob this psalm of its prophetic character. Some say it is only an expression of some kind of suffering that David experienced. But we have no record that David ever endured this kind of rejection, scorn, and violence. David was the author

This past weeks issue of Time featured their annual list of the world's 100 most influential people. The list was broken down into categories that consisted of leaders and revolutionaries, builders and titans, heroes and icons, scientist and thinkers, and artist and entertainers. Time...

Let us turn to a passage of Scripture that has helped untold thousands of people to see the basis of their salvation. Luke 23:32-48. "And there were also two others, malefactors, led with Him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place, which is called The Skull, there they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand and the other on the left...

We have seen that Pilate has sentenced Jesus to death. The Jewish charge against our Lord was blasphemy, and the Roman charge is treason. Jesus was condemned without sufficient evidence of the charges that were made against Him. Jesus was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane early on Friday Morning, and now He has been up all night being...

It's one thing to be mocked, but it's another thing to be mocked while you are suffering. During his trial, his scourging, and his crucifixion, Jesus was continually mocked. In most people's eyes, Jesus was a pathetic fool who thought he was something that he really wasn't...

by Charles H. Spurgeon

A great many persons, whenever they hear of the conversion of the dying thief, remember that he was saved in the very article of death, and they dwell upon that fact and that alone. He has always been quoted as a case of salvation at the eleventh hour, and so, indeed, he is. In his case it is proven that as long as a man...

Both phrases, ''It is finished'' and ''It is done,'' were spoken by Christ, and both were heard by John: the first when he stood near the cross and in the darkness of the ninth hour heard Jesus cry out with a great voice, ''It is finished''; the second when, in the vision granted unto him on the Isle of Patmos, he stood before the throne...

Good Friday is a problem. First, there is the name. We call it good. No one called it good then. Then there's what happened. They killed Jesus. Everything had looked so different on Palm Sunday. The crowds cheered. Even Monday and Tuesday were very different from Friday. Jesus took charge. He cleared the temple and confounded his adversaries...

by Brian Fletcher

We will be reading a lot of scripture. We want to hear and understand the full story of what happened and this is how God has chosen to tell us about it. 23:22 I have found no guilt in him.23:28 do not weep for me but for yourselves The innocence of Jesus and the guilt of man. Everyone seemed to know that Jesus was...

One of the things you have to know is that the devil can never force you to do anything. The devil cannot disqualify you from God's blessing. He couldn't do it to Jesus and he can't do it to you but what he can do is that he can pressure you so much that you do something to disqualify yourself. Now as everyone of you sit in here today God looks at you and He says - I want to bless you. I want to love...

James Merritt said, ''Normally people are remembered for what they accomplished during their lives - the things they did to make a difference-good or bad - in the lives of others. We know George Washington was the first president of the United States and was a famous general in the Revolutionary War. Benjamin Franklin and...

The cross was so necessary on our part in order for there to be any help or hope for anyone that has ever sinned. The resurrection is an event that places the Lord Jesus Christ in authority to vindicate (justify) His claims. Here, in 2008, we are living in days of uncertainty, to say the least. The housing and real estate industry has seen challenging times...

On Friday morning, a lady called the office and wanted to know if we were going to have a "Good Friday" service. I told her were not; however, I invited her to attend Easter services with us. On Friday of this week, millions of Christians around the world celebrated "Good Friday." Many believe this to be the day our...
