Looking Forward To Sunday

Posted on April 19, 2017.

I recently read the following yarn from Gerald Harris: “The story is told of Nikita Khruschev's death. He had fallen out of favor with many of the people in his Communist Party and they didn't even want him to be buried on Russian soil, so they started looking for a country where he could be buried and asked Richard Nixon if Khrushchev could be buried here in the U. S. Nixon said, "Absolutely not!"

Georges Pompidou of France and Edward Heath of England said the same thing. So they called Golda Meir, the Prime Minister of Israel who had been born in Kiev, Ukraine; and Meir's answer from Israel was classic: "Yes, you may bury him here, but I must remind you that we have the highest resurrec-tion rate of any country in the world.“

In actuality, Khrushev is buried in Moscow but Israel’s resurrection record is no myth. Jesus arose from the grave on Easter Sunday Morning and because He is alive, those who put their trust in Him will one day also transcend death. In fact, the power of the resurrection is sufficient for every believer to have victory over whatever difficulty is faced in this life. Such news should be celebrated every Sunday and not just once a year. It is in truth the reason we worship on Sundays. Make a point to celebrate the resurrection with us this week!

Looking forward to Sunday,
