He Is Risen: From Good Friday to Easter!

April 4, 2021

He Is Risen: From Good Friday to Easter!

MESSAGE SUMMARY:  Jesus was the perfect Passover Pascal sacrificial Lamb on Good Friday. The events of Holy Week changed the world with His Resurrection on Easter Sunday. 

Holy Week, this week leading up to the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus, was a week full of events in Jesus’ earthly life – arriving in Jerusalem on Sunday to the adoration of vast crowds and being hailed as “King”; entering into Jerusalem through the “East Gate”, the gate predicted for the arrival of the Messiah; visiting, teaching and debating in the Temple; celebrating Passover with His disciples, thereby instituting the sacrament for us of the “Holy Communion”; on Friday, being tortured and crucified on the Cross, and taking onto Himself all the sins of the world and becoming the Sacrificial Lamb when He called out “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”; completing the work, at His actual death on the Cross, that He came to earth to accomplish; nothing occurring on earth during His death on the remainder of Friday and Saturday; and arising, alive, from the tomb Sunday to be seen and to converse with His disciples. These seven days, in the life of the God-Man Jesus, changed everything for all the world!

After the events in the life of Jesus during this Holy Week, it was apparent, to His friends and disciples, that Jesus was who He said He was – Jesus was the Messiah sent by God to fulfill God’s New Covenant for those that had faith in Jesus as God’s son and followed Jesus in their lives. This promised Messiah opens a spiritual world of communication directly with God for those of us that follow Jesus.

Not only did Jesus arise from the dead 2000 years ago; but He is, also, alive today and seeking a relationship with us! During Holy Week, Jesus left us a pattern for how to live an abundant Christian life today -- die in ourselves; take up His Cross; and follow Him – as Paul tells us in Galatians 2:20: “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.". We cannot be “crucified with Christ” if we live with a life-focus on “me, myself, and I”.

He is risen, but do our lives reflect Jesus’ sacrifice for us; are we “crucified with Christ”?


TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: Today, I affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, Jesus, I AM FORGIVEN. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9).

Scripture Reference (ESV): Matthew 16:24-25; 1 Peter 4:1-6; John 12:24; Mark 8:34.

About A Word from the Lord

The vision of A Word from the Lord is to share Biblical teaching using the instruments of radio, print, computer, the Internet, and satellite technology so that people might hear and apply the WORD of GOD and discover the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah.

In today’s world of confusing and conflicting messages from the Church, a major goal of A Word from the Lord can be summarized from Nehemiah when: They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving meaning so that the people could understand what was being read (Nehemiah 8:8,NIV). With all the clutter in today's media venues, A Word from the Lord, seeks to proclaim in simple terms the ancient Faith of the Scriptures. As the Apostle Paul has written for us: So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ (Romans 10:17, ESV).
