All Things New

 Matthew 27: 51-54
At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split  and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.  They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”

Friday happened.
Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, was crucified for our sins.
He suffered, died, and was buried.

For you.

For me.

For our future children.

If there was only one of us, He would have done it, for we matter to Him.

But Sunday always comes, this Sunday, the Sunday of all Sundays- the Resurrection.

He rose, so that scripture might be fulfilled.

He rose, so that we might be with Him forever in Heaven.

He rose, so that all things could be made new.

Matthew 28: 17- 20
When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

He has promised.

Do you?
