Good Friday

Written by Abby Bickel on . Posted in WBC Blog

What makes the day that Jesus died on a cross good?  The pain and separation that Jesus went thru on the cross can hardly be described as good. After all, the word crucifixion is where we get our English word excruciating. The cross is where the wrath of God and the love of God intersect. God’s wrath was poured out on Jesus.

Jesus lived the life we couldn’t live and died the death we should have died. He paid for our sins. He died our death and God’s love is extended to us at the cross.

So a perfect man lived a perfect life and died a death we should have died. You see the goodness of Good Friday is only realized because of what happened 3 days later.  Jesus’ physical resurrection allows us to experience spiritual resurrection. We were dead in our sins (Ephesians 2) but made spiritually alive because of Christ. Paul goes on to say in 1 Corinthians 15:14, “if Christ has not been raised from the dead, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.”

In light of what Jesus has done for us, we recognize that God took the worst day in human history and used it for our good and His glory.

Join us for our Good Friday service // Friday March 30th @ 6:30pm // it will be a night of worship, prayer, and communion as we remember our deliverance and celebrate our inheritance in Jesus.

Jesus knew…

A single cross with the reflection of an empty tomb.

Mark 10:33-34 “We’re going up to Jerusalem,” Jesus said. “and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn Him to death and will hand Him over to the Gentiles, who will mock Him and spit on Him, flog Him and kill Him. Three days later He will rise.”

Jesus knew Caiphas (the high priest) would hand Him over to Pilate and the Romans.
Jesus knew they’d choose Barrabas over Him.
Jesus knew they would mock Him.
Jesus knew they would spit on Him.
Jesus knew they would flog Him.
Jesus knew they would kill Him.

Jesus knew it all, and yet went thru it all. He explicitly predicted His death at least three times during his ministry. Being the Son of God afforded Him the foreknowledge to understand not only that He’d die but the manner in which He would die. But Jesus also knew that He’d come back from the dead three days later.

Jesus knew the details of His life, death, and resurrection but He also knows you. He knows every mistake, success, failure, doubt, lack of faith, and yet He still loves you. His relentless love knows the innermost thoughts and desires of your heart and He loves you anyway.

Jesus knew and Jesus knows you. But He really wants you to know Him. Our hope is that this Easter you come to know Jesus better. If you’d like to know more about a relationship with Jesus contact us at We’d love to tell you more!

On Easter Sunday we’re launching a new message series that will answer this question:

How do we live with hope when life is hard and our future seems so uncertain?

God created us to live on hope.

When our hope levels are running low we struggle to get up and go.

When our hope levels are up we have energy to tackle the challenges of the day.

We’ll discover timeless truth from the Bible that will help us face our everyday circumstances with a heart full of hope.  

We hope you can join us at 9:00 or 10:30am as we celebrate Easter at West Bridge! If you’re a first time guest and you want to know what to expect click here.

Your brother,
