Campolo gives context to his most famous sermon “Sunday is Coming”. As I prepare my heart this Good Friday I realize that Sunday makes no sense without Friday and Friday makes no sense without Sunday. As I recognize the depth of my own sin, I simultaneously recognize the need for a Savior who is willing to meet me in that same sin.
This process is something that liturgical churches seem to grasp. Holy week, Lent and Good Friday services are stripped of “Hallelujahs”, bright lights and loud trumpets. Our depravity and sin are sobering. Then on Easter morning the loud music and Hallelujahs are belted out as Christ defeats death for the sake of His people. This is a rich process that many of our own stories often mirror.
Today is Friday, but Sunday is Coming!
