Hope Has Come! Sunday has come!

Written by CtL Missionary Cindy Rorher

Good news! Sunday is coming. On that Friday when Jesus was crucified and breathed his last, that must’ve been the worst day in the disciples’ lives. They had put all their hope, all their faith, all their commitment and their trust in Jesus, and he had just died. They were devastated, confused, and hopeless. Their best friend and mentor had been brutally killed in front of them. They thought he was the messiah, the Son of God, but had he been lying? Had they been deceived? Had they given up their jobs, their families, their reputations, and their livelihoods for nothing? I can imagine they left Calvary’s hill that day with a deep feeling of hopelessness.

Many of us have also probably experienced a “Friday” season- maybe we stepped out in faith and were met with failure. Maybe we put ourselves out there and were rejected. Maybe we trusted in God for a miracle and were disappointed. Maybe we cried out for God to deliver us but the pain didn’t stop. We feel abandoned by God and start to wonder if he is truly who he says he is. Can he be trusted? Is he really good? 


There is Good News! Sunday is coming. 

The disciples never expected that Jesus would rise from the dead (even though he told them multiple times that he would). They didn’t expect that their hope would be restored and that their faith would be proved to be true. But when Sunday came, Jesus rose again, defeating sin and death, and brought with him renewed power, hope, and joy. 


No matter how dark your Friday may seem right now, we have a promise from God that Sunday is coming. Whether it’s in this life or the next, he will restore our joy, our hope, our life, and all that has been stolen from us. It says in Psalm 30:5, “Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” 


We thank God this Easter season that in every “Friday” season that we experience, we can take heart and have hope, because we have full assurance that Sunday is coming.
