The Day After The Resurrection

Posted: April 1, 2013 in Uncategorized

Can you imagine what it must have been like the day after Jesus rose from the dead? I have to believe that word spread like wildfire. Twitter and facebook were not needed to spread the news of the risen Savior. His followers did not live in fear anymore. They boldly proclaimed the news of the resurrection. They celebrated and didn’t care who knew.

Fast forward 2,000 years…

Yesterday a couple billion Christians celebrated the fact that Christ rose from the dead. Some were moved to the point of tears as they considered the incredible sacrifice and incredible victory that is represented in the empty tomb…

I wonder why the same celebratory spirit that was present on resurrection Sunday yesterday is not present today in most believers…Perhaps we have missed the most important message of all. While yesterday was a day of celebration it pales in comparison to the celebration that will take place when we get to see our risen Savior face to face.

It only gets better…Let’s live with that truth in mind…

    what always puzzled me is the name “Good Friday”, that’s gotta be the most wrong name for anyday of the year….should be black Friday, since it was the day that Jesus was killed….eh?
