Why do we celebrate Easter? We celebrate the coming of Sunday! Christ was resurrected! He defeated the grave! He lives! We can each take comfort in this statement! Our Savior overcame the grave, but he also overcame so much more than this! Because our Savior went through that dark Friday, we can each experience that bright Sunday! We can each be resurrected and return again to live with our Heavenly Father. We will each have those Fridays in our own lives. Those days where nothing seems to go right, where the world is falling in around us and where we may feel forsaken, but this is not the end. We must stay faithful and continue on the path of righteousness, and Sunday will come! I testify that this is true, that when we endure those hard times the Savior will save us. He is waiting for each of us to allow Sunday to come. We must invite him in to save us from that Friday! I know this is true, because I have had those Fridays and I have seen the Sundays come!
Think about all the Savior has done for you this week and all year. He loves you. He wants you to be happy. He is there for you always. He is with you on the Fridays and is bringing you the Sundays.
Happy Easter! The Lord is risen!
