"The Day That Changed Everything"

April 06, 2023 | By Chuck

 We all have specific days in our lifetime that impacted us or even changed us to some degree. I’ll never forget my baptism; I’m sure you won’t either. What about your first date with your spouse? Your wedding day? The births of your children? These are all life-changing days that we won’t easily forget. These kinds of days are the highlights of our lives and mold us into who we become. 

            There was a day that literally changed everything. I don’t mean a few people were impacted or a specific town or city influenced. I’m referring to a day that changed everything worldwide. “But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.” (Luke 24:1-3) They did not find the body of Jesus in His tomb because He had risen from death early that Sunday morning. Many have died and were buried, but only Jesus rose from death.

            The day of Jesus’ resurrection did change everything for all of us. The resurrection proves that Jesus is the Son of God and was God in the flesh. The resurrection is proof that Jesus overcame death; no one else has done that or ever will. “God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.” (Acts 2:24) On that Sunday everything changed because the world’s status changed from hopeless to hopeful. A relationship with a resurrected Lord changes everything for us because through Him we have eternal life after this life. I’ve had days that changed my attitude or outlook, but the resurrection day of Jesus literally changed everything throughout the world.
