"God's Friday, The Day God Died for our Salvation"

"God's Friday, The First Good Friday" is a constant phrase in this Sunday's "Lutheran Hour" sermon preached by Ken Klaus.
Go to
Lutheran Hour Ministries - The Lutheran Hour
and look for links to read the sermon transcript, here it on line as well as to subscribe to the weekly podcast or have sermon texts emailed to you weekly.

As every Christian school child knows "Christ paid for my sins by dying on the Cross on Good Friday." Four of the statements in the Apostles' Creed refer to the events surrounding the Crucifixion.

I have been seeking something that might tie all this together, particularly to direct the new Christian to, insofar as what does being saved all mean and how was this achieved.

Thanks to Ray Pritchard and
ministries and his weekly podcast, we have Salvation boiled down to 27 and a half minutes of succcinct information much like the mantra "give us 20 minutes and we'll give you the world" slogans offered by all news radio stations such as WBBM Chicago, WINS New York or KNX Los Angeles.
The sermon,
The Day God Died,
uses Hebrews 9 and 10 as its primary scriptural focus rather than one of the 4 gospels.

For those preferring to read the text, it can be found here
The Day God Died Crucified, Died

It is one of those documents that would make for a great inclusion in church new believer packets.
