Bible Reading: Luke 24:1-9, Revelation 1: 17-19

Memory VerseJesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. John 11:25 (NLT)

I celebrate the grace of God upon Rev. Bill Shillady. For the disciples and Christ’s followers in the first century, Good Friday represented the day that everything fell apart. All was lost. The momentum and hope of a man claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah who was supposed to change everything, had been executed.

Even though Jesus told his followers three days later the temple would be restored, they had no idea of what that Sunday would be. They betrayed, denied, mourned, fled and hid. They did just about everything BUT feel good about Friday and their circumstances.

For us, Friday is the phone call from the doctor that the cancer is back. It’s the news that you have lost your job. It’s the betrayal of a friend, the loss of someone dear. Friday is the day that it all falls apart and all hope is lost. We all have Fridays. But, as the saying goes, “Sunday’s Coming.” Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday is here!

Jesus completed the excruciating task of giving up his life as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. It was His faith and belief in His heavenly Father, that gave him the grace and peace to submit to Friday. While death had seemingly won, Jesus knew better. When he said, “It is finished,” it wasn’t meant to be a statement of concession. It was a declaration that a new day was on the way.

Friday is finished. Sunday is here. Death is shattered. Hope is restored. We no longer have to live through the darkness and seeming hopelessness. Today, I bring the power of resurrection to your home, dead marriage, wayward children, dead business,  poor academic performance, the grip of death and hell that has bound your destiny, terminal illness, missing scripts, dead visions, etc, by the power of the risen Christ, in Jesus name.

Quote: The cross is the victory, the resurrection is the triumph…The resurrection is the public display of the victory, the triumph of the crucified one          – Leon Morris.
