It’s Friday…..but Sunday’s coming!

Today is not just an ordinary Friday.  It’s Good Friday  – the Friday before Easter.  And the day, where we commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Easter means rejoicing in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and recognizing what each of those events can teach us about the character of God.

Have you suffered through a “Friday” in your life?   Have there been times when you felt betrayed, alone, unloved,  and scorned?  One minute, the world is  wildly cheering for you and the next –  screaming “Crucify”.   Most of us have  felt the pain of  such a Friday.

I wanted to share this famouns  message by Tony Campolo of  his pastor’s “Sunday’s Coming” sermon at the Baptist Border Crossing in Liberty, MO.  It’s a reminder to us all that “It’s Friday….. but Sunday’s coming!”

“It’s Friday, but Sunday’s coming.

“It was Friday, and my Jesus is dead on a tree. But that’s Friday, and Sunday’s coming.

“Friday, Mary’s crying her eyes out, the disciples are running in every direction like sheep without a shepherd. But that’s Friday, and Sunday’s coming.”

“Friday, some are looking at the world and saying, “As things have been, so they shall be. You can’t change nothing in this world! You can’t change nothing in this world!” But they didn’t know that it was only Friday, and Sunday’s coming.

“Friday, them forces that oppress the poor and keep people down, them forces that destroy people, the forces in control now, them forces that are gonna rule, they don’t know it’s only Friday, but Sunday’s coming.

“Friday, people are saying, “Darkness is gonna rule the world, sadness is gonna be everywhere,” but they don’t know it’s only Friday, but Sunday’s coming.

“Even though this world is rotten, as it is right now, we know it’s only Friday. But Sunday’s coming!”

Be reminded of this truth during Easter: God has worked, is working, and will work through all things, even now as we find ourselves awaiting his return.
