Scripture Reading: Luke 24:1-12
So, how’s your weekend been so far? Everyone good? Everyone recovered from Good Friday?
Good Friday is such a hard day. I don’t know if you find it that way or not, but I find it hard. Jesus dying and all that. And knowing that I put him there. It’s a very emotional day.
And then all day Saturday, you just aren’t sure how you’re supposed to feel. Should I be happy it’s a nice day and get out and enjoy it? Or do I sit and mourn some more? What is it we’re supposed to do?
Everyone around us is so excited it’s a 4-day weekend! They are out playing with their kids, happy and excited. Spring is very much in the air!
Yet as Christians, we don’t know what to think. We want to be happy, but we almost feel guilty about it. Jesus died, and we had a hand in it. So when Sunday morning comes, it’s almost a sense of relief! Finally! We can celebrate! We can be happy!
But should it be a sense of relief?
