A Mighty God

In the Reproaches on Good Friday, we pray, "Holy and mighty God."

On Good Friday. 
When God hangs on a cross, dying.

Mighty God.

Such words are ludicrous to the world.
It may even look paradoxical to many Christians.

But yes, we mean it: mighty God.

It is precisely in His death where His might and glory are seen,
where sin, death, and Satan are defeated by His atonement.
