“It was Friday; it was Friday and my Jesus was dead on the cross. But that was Friday and Sunday’s comin’!”
“It was Friday and Mary was cryin’ her eyes out. The disciples were runnin’ in every direction, like sheep without a Shepherd, but that was Friday. Sunday’s comin’!”
And so he said the Sermon continued, building in volume and power all the time.
“ It was Friday. The cynics were lookin’ at the world and saying; you can’t change anything. But those cynics didn’t know it was Friday. Sunday’s comin’!”
Tony recorded that that the sermon reached such an excitement that when the preacher delivered the final, “It’s Friday!” the whole congregation roared back, “BUT SUNDAY’S COMIN’!”
That may or may not remind you of your church but the sentiment is universal. We’ve journeyed through Lent to Good Friday and look to the excitement of Easter Day!
Christ has died;
Christ is risen;
Christ will come again!
Sunday’s coming! And that Sunday hope and excitement radiates out of Easter to every day, to our whole lives, to all ages! In a cynical and hurting world it’s hope for the now and for the future!
