The event that Christians around the world commemorate today – the crucifixion of Jesus Christ – would be meaningless if it were not for Sunday.  The tomb would still be sealed.  Death would still hold its grip over us.  We would not have forgiveness of sin.  The Apostle Paul knew what was at stake when he wrote to the Corinthian Church.

Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection from the dead?  But if there is no resurrection from the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.  And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain…  And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.  Then those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.  If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied, (1 Corinthians 15:12-14, 17-19, ESV).

Praise God though Sunday’s coming!  The tomb could not hold him, and while he suffered and died – even death could not conquer Him.  I wanted to share the video above that features S.M. Lockridge’s famous sermon, “It’s Friday, But Sunday’s Coming” with clips from the movie The Passion of the Christ.
