Yesterday I shared some thoughts on Good Friday, and an amazing video that reminds us of what Jesus did for us on the cross. But do you know the One for whom the world was waiting? They were waiting for the king – the King of Kings.
Jesus died on Good Friday, and rose on Easter, but what about Saturday? I wonder how many people were disappointed while waiting for the King. I wonder how many had seen his miracles and now were so confused that He was dead, and buried, with the stone still rolled in front of the tomb?
I wonder if they were shocked that this man who had healed so many people and raised the dead was stuck behind the rock and not using the same power for Himself. I wonder if they questioned all of the miracles they had seen and heard about. I wonder if they gave up on him and decided to go about life as if they’d never crossed his path.
I wonder if they realized that He was a different kind of King. He was not a King who would come blazing in with an army and conquer the world. Rather He was a King who was coming to change hearts and lives.
This video tells us a lot about this King – the King who willingly suffered death on a cross and burial in tomb, all so that we could have Eternity with Him.
I wonder – do you know Him? Are you waiting for the King? Easter is a wonderful weekend to get to know Him. He died, He was buried, but on the third day He rose from the dead. He is alive! He is not in the tomb anymore. The stone was rolled away and the King is with His Father in heaven. Have you made your decision to choose Him? This King seeks to rule your heart, but leaves the choice to you. Will you choose Him? Have you chosen Him? As we wait this Easter weekend, can you say, “That’s MY King!”
Some people are still waiting for the King. They don’t realize He has already come to pay the price for us, and that He will come back someday. We can rejoice this day before Easter, knowing that He is alive!
