“On The Third Day”
Easter’s Meaning to Me
By Sharyl Johnson
Easter, isn’t about rabbits and candy.
It’s, about remembering Jesus, and His
I’ve been waiting a long time, to write a message about this wonderful day. I never got to when I was filling in for my pastor. I hope you like it.
“On The Third Day”
Luke 24:46-47 (NIV)
46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
He suffer for us, so we wouldn’t have to. As long as we confess our sins, and ask forgiveness. Just think of how many are going to suffer because they don’t believe.
After the cross he was put in a tomb, where he was guarded. Short time later a wonderful surprise had happen!
Mark 16:5-7 (NIV)
5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’”
Boy… I bet they weren’t expecting that..
Acts 4:33 (NIV)
33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all.
An we must continue to share His Word with everyone.
Just like Jesus, His greatest day was when He was Resurrected, and our greatest day will be the day we get to join Him.
HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY EVERYONE!
