How do you feel about your sin?
Do you hate sin? Do you hate
Psalms 97:10 -
Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: . . .
The only time a godly person, a child of God, is ever told to hate anything
is in this verse. God's people
ought to hate sin. But far to
often we love our sin more than we love our Lord Jesus Christ.
How do we know when we love our sin more than we love Christ?
When we are tempted to sin, and choose to sin, rather than to remain
obedient to Christ, our actions declare that we love our sin more than we
love our Lord. We may not want
to admit that our choices and actions reflect our affections or our love,
but they do. That's why we say,
"Actions speak louder than words."
The Word of God says,
- But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own
Our Lord said,
- If ye love me, keep may commandments.
If you love the Lord Jesus Christ then you ought to hate sin.
You ought to hate sin because of what our sin caused our Lord to
suffer. Our Lord Jesus Christ
suffered and died on, what we call, Good Friday many years ago.
It is Good Friday for you and I, beacause the full penalty for our
sins was paid in full by our Lord, but that Friday was anything but good for
our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible says,
Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before
him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form
nor comeliness; and when we shall see him,
there is no beauty that we
should desire him. 3 He is
despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our
faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and
afflicted. 5 But he
was wounded for our
transgressions, he was
bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace
was upon him; and with his
stripes we are healed.
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ
Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set
forth to be a propitiation
through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission
of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
26 To declare,
I say, at this time his
righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which
believeth in Jesus.
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with
him, that the body of sin
might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from
sin. 8 Now if we be dead with
Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised
from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be
sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God
1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being
dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were
So, what does hating sin and loving our Lord Jesus Christ have to do with
Good Friday and the suffering of our Lord?
The Course of Events
Jesus anointed for burial in Simon the Leper’s house in Bethany (Matt
26.6-13; Mark 14.1-11; cf. John 11.2; John 12.1-8) – Mark begins his
discourse of the Passion of our Lord with this act of anointing while
Matthew places this two days prior and , John marks this as much as six days
prior. It occurred within the
week of Jesus’ crucifixion.
The betrayal arraigned by Judas Iscariot (Luke 22.1-6)
Passover Supper (Matt 26.17-29; Mark 14.12-25; Luke 22.7-38; John 13.1-)
The washing of the apostles feet (John 13.3-17)
Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If
I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
John 13:10 Jesus
saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash
his feet, but is clean
every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
A betrayal revealed (Matt 26.23; Mark 14.18-20; Luke 22.21; John 13.18-30)

Jesus Passover sermon (John 13.31-16.33)
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved
you, that ye also love one another. 35
By this shall all men
know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many
mansions: if it were not
so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you. 3
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and
receive you unto myself; that where I am,
there ye may be also.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he
may abide with you for ever; 17
Even the Spirit of
truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither
knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you
comfortless: I will come to you.
But the Comforter, which is
the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all
things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,
except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than
this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before
it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the
world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have
chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
2 They shall put you out of the
synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that
he doeth God service.
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the
world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the
Jesus Passover Prayer (John 17.1-26)
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me
through their word; 21 That
they all may be one; as thou, Father,
art in me, and I in thee,
that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast
sent me. 22 And the glory which
thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me,
that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou
hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they also,
whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my
glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation
of the world.

The Feast of Saturnalia (Matt 27.27-31; Mark 15.16-20; John 19.2-3)
They had, at this particular time, corresponding to the Jewish Passover,
they had the feast of Saturnalia; and, in this feast,
they made sport of a mock king. And, if they could not have a real prisoner
to make sport of, they would make a man of straw and buffet him around—their
mock king. But, this time they had a very special prisoner—One who called
Himself the King of the Jews. And so, they made a crown for Him. They put a
purple robe on Him, and then, they blindfolded Him, and they began to shove
Him from one soldier to another. They would shove Him to a soldier, and that
soldier would take his big brawny fist and smite the Lord Jesus. And then,
they'd say, "If You're a prophet, tell us who smote you." And then, they'd
shove Him to another one, and this one would take His beard and pluck it
from His cheeks. The prophets said they tore the hair from his face (Isaiah
50:6). Can you imagine?
Then, another—He'd be shoved to another one, and this one was a foul mouth,
full of spit, who would spit in the face, mingled with blood, with foul
human spit, in the face of the Lord of glory. Then, they shoved Him to
another one; this one had a club. Now, the Bible says they smote Him with a
reed (Mark 15:19). Don't get the idea that it was a reed like some fragile
limb from a shrub. It was a bamboo club; and, with that bamboo club, they
battered and bruised the Lord Jesus. And, with that club, they drove those
nails, or those thorns, hideous thorns, into His temple. When they had
finished with the Lord Jesus—blood running from His nose, His teeth
loosened, His temples pierced, His face swollen, His body flayed—it would
have been hard to tell whether He was a man or an animal that had been
stripped of His skin. It is no wonder that Christ was unable to bear His own

The Death of Christ (Matt 27.50-56; Mark 15.37-41; Luke 23.46-49; John
Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51 And, behold, the veil of the
temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did
quake, and the rocks rent;
37 And Jesus cried with a loud
voice, and gave up the ghost. 38

Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud
voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said
thus, he gave up the ghost.

he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
