This Holy Week, Good Friday, and Easter have been unlike any other in our lifetime.
We find ourselves confined to our homes, unable to fellowship with our friends. Unable to attend church services. Unable to go to Easter dinner with our families. Unable to hug our parents, or other elderly relatives. We are isolated.
Yet, even in isolation, God is faithful. Noah and his family remained isolated in the ark for 40 days. The rains poured down, the winds blew. When the storm had passed, land was found. Life began again.
Jonah spent three days and nights in isolation inside a whale. He used the time to reach out and pray to God. After three days, God answered his prayers. The whale returned Jonah to dry land. God was faithful. Life began again.
Daniel spent a night in a den, away from everyone else. He was surrounded by lions. When the morning came, the king went into the den. Daniel was alive. He explained that God had heard his cry, and had delivered him from the lions. God was faithful. Life began again.
After the crucifixion, the body of Jesus was placed in a tomb. A large stone was rolled in front of the entrance. Complete isolation. After three days time, just as was promised and foretold, God was faithful. Jesus Christ was resurrected. His life began again.
Let us celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ today. He loved us so much, He willingly died for our sins. Let us also remember that God is faithful in all things.
We may be isolated- but with God, we are never alone.
Life will begin again.
Return to Christ
