Three Days

2018-04-01

(Romans 8:11) The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you.

And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies (dead things) by this same Spirit living within you.

Shon’s translation - The resurrection of Jesus gives you the power to close the gap between the life you are living and the life you could live.

Why 3 Days?

(1 Peter 2:21) This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He suffered everything that came His way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.

Friday - The Day of Pain

· Physical pain

· Emotional pain

· Relational pain

There is no pain that God’s purpose cannot redeem.

Saturday - The Day of Confusion

· We want answers

· We begin to doubt

· We give up

· We feel alone

(Psalm 73:16) When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood.

There is no confusion that His presence cannot calm.

Sunday - The Day of Resurrection

(Revelation 1:17-18) I am the First and the Last. I am the living one. I died, but look --- I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.

(Romans 6:4-5) And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. 5Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as He was…

There is no death that His power cannot resurrect!

(Philippians 3:10-11) I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him (Friday), sharing in his death (Saturday), so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead (Sunday).
