In the gloom of Friday, He Who is blessed forever – was raised in scorn. But in the bloom of Sunday, He Who is Worthy – was raised in triumph!
He Is Alive!
To the human eye Good Friday was final: God died.
There was no purpose, no plan, and no hope. Jesus’ death was the end. Friday was pointless.
But without Friday, Sunday never comes.
And on Sunday, Jesus rose from the dead and reclaimed His immortality. Omnificent God.
He refused death’s hold. Omnipotent God.
Jesus broke sin’s curse. Omniscient God.
Sunday changes everything for all who trust in Jesus, Creator, Sustainer, God Only Wise.
All sinners are separated from God and doomed to die forever – and all are sinners. But everyone who accepts Jesus’ death and resurrection as full payment for their sins will be forgiven in this life and welcomed to eternal life.
Jesus’ resurrection is absolute assurance of God and His character. Easter is the proof of His promises, and His promises are freedom from sin, friendship with God, and life abundant now and forever.
Those are the promises of Easter.
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
