Celebrating the resurrection of Christ is this coming weekend. If you know the word of God and you know what happens starting on Good Friday. Good Friday (from the senses pious, holy of the word “good”) is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. He died on the cross and was buried in a tomb. The soliders went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” Matthew 28:1-8
Explaining this to an unbeliever is hard because they have no knowledge of the Truth. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”
1 Corinthians 1:18-19
People think knowledge is obtained by how many degrees they have or how long they lived, etc.. True knowledge comes from the word of God. It will lead you and guide you in a way that nothing else will. Not until you fully receive Him in your life, do you begin to understand it.
Celebrate this weekend that Christ loved you so much he died for our sins and rose again. He loves you and knows everything about you. It is just like if you love someone so bad it hurts but you can’t make them love you back. It has to be mutual. He already loves you so much he gave his life for you. You have to love Him and trust all that He is. It is called, faith.
For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
1 Corinthians 1:25
