Everything we believe in hinges on Sunday. If Jesus never walked out of that tomb then Friday would have been the end of a mediocre story. If Jesus was just a nice man who died on a cross, then His name would have been forgotten. But Sunday did happen, and He did walk out. In that single day over 2,000 years ago that nice man declared His Lordship by conquering death itself.
But what about Monday? What about the days when the glory of Sunday seems like a faint memory overwhelmed by the struggles of the present day?Through our work, we sometimes see the worst of those struggles. There a days when poverty and hunger, death, brokenness, pain and need, seem too big.
But if Sunday really happened then we have a resurrected King sitting on the throne of Heaven. His sovereignty is why we do what we do. He is alive and because He lives we will not stop.
Monday may seem unbearable but we will declare every Monday morning that King Jesus is alive and He has overcome the world!
