Sunday's Coming

As we approach Easter weekend, I pray that each of you knows the One who is Truth, Jesus Christ. Some 2000 years ago, He willingly gave up his life by suffering a horrendous, painful death on a cross so that you and I might be set free. His death was not in vain--because it didn't end there. Jesus was resurrected on the third day, and because He conquered death, we have the victory.

Satan's "victory" (or what he perceived as such) came on Friday--ours came on Sunday. On that Friday, those watching had no idea what was coming. They saw Jesus die, and they thought that was the end. But God had something else in store. Jesus was not dead forever. He was coming back--and that Sunday forever changed the course of man. That Sunday, Jesus rose again; in doing so, He conquered death. And I can not stop giving thanks for the greatest gift ever given. Jesus has saved me from my sins, from the eternal punishment I deserve--and He desires the same for every one of us. Jesus lived a perfect life on this earth; He died for crimes He did not commit; He was raised to life on the third day, and He longs for you to know Him and be in relationship with Him.

Whether you know Him as your Lord and Savior or not, I urge you to watch this video (with footage from The Passion of the Christ). If you have questions about this Jesus and who He is, feel free to leave a comment below. And come Sunday, find yourself in church. We'd love to have you at ours, FBC McKinney. He is Risen! He is Risen, indeed!
