Sunday...The First Day of the New Week

I’ve spent the better part of the day trying to figure out what to post today. Obviously today is the day that we commemorate and celebrate the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago, but what could I post, that has not already been said?
I can only think of one thing, so I will share it nonetheless.
I think the one thing that really shocks me more than anything about the resurrection story, is the fact that after reading each account of the resurrection story in the  different gospels, we are often reminded of the fact that the people that witnessed the empty tomb, or were told about the empty tomb, all “marveled” at the fact that the tomb was empty.
For years Christ had told his followers that He was going to suffer, die and rise again on the third day, yet even after being told countless times, when He did die, they were all under the impression that that was the end of the story.
Have you ever had a sports team on a winning streak? Then finally that fateful day came and they were beat? The attitude often turns to that of one being, “Well it was fun while it lasted.”
I almost think that that is the way that the followers of Christ felt. “Well that was a good run.”
They had all witnessed His death upon the cross, and all had been given the promise that He would rise again, but on that third morning, when the ladies came to place perfumes on a dead body, they did not find a dead body, but instead they found an empty tomb…which is ACTUALLY what they should have been coming to look at in the first place!
What about us? How many times has God given to us promises that certain things were going to happen in our lives, but when they actually happen we have to ask God why they are happening to us?!
We are told that God will never leave us nor forsake us – Hebrews 13:5, but when we feel all alone, why do we ask God where He’s gone to?
When we are in need why do we fail to turn to God when he has promised to meet all of our needs?  – Philippians 4:19
We have so many promises that we can turn to, and often times still forget!
Would we have gone to the tomb that morning expecting to find a dead body, or expecting to find an empty tomb?
I believe that 2,000 years later after this wonderful event occurred, Christ is still asking us to trust Him, and place our faith in Him.
So often we place our faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins, and we trust Him with our eternal destination, but it seems like the other promises that he’s given to us are oddly “up in the air” as if they might happen or might not.
When will we say that we are either “All In” when it comes to Christ, or we are “All out”?
