Between Friday and Sunday, the world stopped.
The earth shook. Thunder and lightening beamed and rumbled across the earth.
A people in bewilderment wondered what in the world has just happened?
Jesus was hung on the cross and was forced to accept his own death–to be killed.
He had once told the leaders of the people that “this temple” would be destroyed and rebuilt in three days.
Now that Jesus has died, how can a dead man rebuild a temple? A man once alive is now dead.
Did God in heaven make an empty promise?
Did God truly love humankind?
Did God truly love his Son?
Did God make a mistake in sending His Son into the world?
Was God swindled out of His Son?
God gave His one and only Son to die for humankind. His Son is now dead. What now?
God gave his Son as a ransom and took upon himself the sins of humanity. For what?
Between Friday and Sunday, the world awaits… for something.
It does not know what is to come. Uncertainty hangs in the air with a hint of expectation. The third day is coming.
