This morning we’re leaving before the sun rises. I wonder how many times we’ve done that, and honestly I couldn’t say. I do know this, we’ve never left before The Son rose, and I thank God for that.
Every day of our lives, we wake up to the reality of Calvary and of an empty tomb, borrowed, and only used for three days. We know Jesus is alive, and alive for evermore. For the Christian, Easter is more than a yearly celebration, it’s a daily experience.
I believe that one day soon, Jesus will return for a people who have made themselves ready. Maybe your walk with Jesus, at times, involves sacrifice, but rest assured, it’s worth it. One day soon, He will return for us. Who knows, maybe we will leave before the sunrise, because The Son Rose!
