The Night Before The Dawn

Good Friday and Easter Sunday are all about Jesus Christ, who He is and what He's done. But as we meditate on His person and work through the events of this weekend, may we be strengthened by knowing that for every Good Friday of our lives that we will walk through...
...that I may know him...and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death...
Philippians 3:10
...there is a Resurrection Sunday just around the corner.
...that I may know him and the power of his resurrection...that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
Philippians 3:10-11
Good Friday and Easter Sunday show us that the darkness will always give way to the dawn. The two always go together. All because of Jesus.

So please help us, Father, to know what is the immeasurable greatness of Your power toward us who believe, according to the working of Your great might that you worked in Christ when You raised Him from the dead and seated him at Your right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come. Thank You, Jesus, that You rose and conquered the grave. In your awesome name, Amen.
