On the third day
Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them,
“We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”
Thank God for that third day! Let us not ever forget that the sun shines after the rain. Jesus told his disciples this miraculous thing and yet they still forgot (read Luke 24:2-8). We often become so very overwhelmed that we forget what we already know - a third day is coming! Jesus has not forgotten us. The Holy Spirit has not abandoned us. Our God still hears and ANSWERS us! Never forget that the Almighty Christ broke the system of suffering to make a way for us to get to heaven - there is no darkness in this world or the next that His light can't overcome.
