The story of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion is one of betrayal, brutality, despair, and pain. Yet we know even before His death that redemption was promised to be coming soon. We know that the story does not end at the cross. We know what many did not realize – that Sunday’s coming.

Celebrating Easter means rejoicing in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and recognizing what each of those events can teach us about the character of God. Be reminded of this truth during Easter: God has worked, is working, and will work through all things, even now as we find ourselves awaiting His return.


• Matthew 26:36 – 28:20
• Mark 14:32 – 16:20
• Luke 22:39 – 24:53
• John 18:1 – 20:31

Questions to ponder:

  • Consider the events of Easter week. What was accomplished on our behalf by these events?
  • Read Luke 22:42. What does Jesus’ prayer say about His character in light of what was about to take place?
  • What implications does this have for us as we strive to become Christ-like?
  • In what ways does the concept “it’s Friday, but Sunday’s coming’” extend beyond the Easter story?

Friday He died

On Saturday while they wept, He fought

While they mourned, He conquered

While they hid in fear, He stormed Hell’s gates

When they thought all was lost, Sunday came

He rose victorious

What was true that first Easter, remains true today

In your circumstance

Though you may feel forsaken and all hope may seem lost

Your darkest hour is His finest

You may not see what He is doing

but resurrection is coming!
