“It is finished,” He’d cried.

Then He lowered His head

and gave up His Spirit. 

Jesus’ followers watched

as darkness descended.

Reality sunk in.

Jesus was gone.

They laid Him in a tomb.

A stone sealed away hope.

Reality sunk in.

Jesus was gone.

The disciples mourned.

One day.

The world slept.

Two days.

Reality sunk in. 

Jesus was gone.

Three days.

The earth shook.

The stone rolled away.

The Truth was revealed.

Jesus was gone.

Then his disciples remembered. 

And reality sunk in.

Sin had lost its power. 

Death had lost its sting.

Hell had been defeated.

He is risen!

Just as He said. 

“Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered His words.”
Luke 24:5-8

Jesus’s disciples had known the truth. He’d told them He’d rise from the dead.

But the facts that faced them proved He’d been wrong. Jesus was gone.

Dead and gone.

But after He rose again, they remembered. Jesus is sovereign over all—even facts

Just as He’d said He would do, Jesus conquered sin and death and rose from the grave. 

No matter your circumstances or feelings, remember the truth. Remember Jesus’ wordseven when everything inside you screams otherwise.

Jesus has never let you down. He won’t start now.

He is faithful. Just as He said.

Trust and believe!
