Pain is a part of the story—everybody’s story. And for the disciples, the day they saw Jesus die was a day when their pain had probably never felt more real. It seemed like God had abandoned and forgotten them. That was on Friday. But then Sunday came—and Jesus was alive! This plot-twist changed the world of the disciples. But it still means something for us today. The resurrection of Jesus gives us hope that God has a Sunday—someday—for all of us. One day, all the pain, all the brokenness, all the hurt will be gone. The resurrection is a guarantee of the someday we all long for—of a world made right when our current world feels so wrong.
One week isn't enough to talk about what Jesus did to pay for our sins. He died on the cross, but the story doesn't end there! Jesus conquered the grave in the resurrection - proof that He is who He says He is! Join us this week at Roots to join in the conversation!
