JUNE 4 – DARK

06/04 Luke 24:21-24
We had thought he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel. That all happened three days ago. 22 Then some women from our group of his followers were at his tomb early this morning, and they came back with an amazing report. 23 They said his body was missing, and they had seen angels who told them Jesus is alive! 24 Some of our men ran out to see, and sure enough, Jesus’ body was gone, just as the women had said.”

We pray and obey seeking to follow the Lord. Then failure comes along. Everything gets dark. It is most dark just before the Lord is in the process of bringing victory out of our failure. The cross was a hard thing for folks to overcome. They felt that everything Jesus had done had been defeated. Then Sunday came and the victory was complete. Jesus had won the victory over death for eternity. Praise the Lord because He is alive.
