1 Cor 15: 1-11; Psalm 118; Luke 7: 36-50

Third Day

In the Bible several momentous events are associated with the third day. On the third day Abraham was prepared to sacrifice Isaac, God came down on Sinai to speak to Moses, Esther besought King Artaxerxes on behalf of the Jews, Joseph and Mary found Jesus in the temple, there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee. And the most significant happening of all occurred on the third day. The Lord Jesus rose from the dead. That third day was also the first day of the week. How well do I keep Sunday as a celebration of the Resurrection?
