Today's featured devotional...
crosses threeDuring this Easter season and always, remember that Jesus is alive! He's not dead! They could not keep Him in the ground. The grave could not hold Him. He is the Resurrected Christ, and He is still alive today for you.

Crucifixion day, which dawned two thousand years ago, was the darkest day in the history  of the world. On that day, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was hung on a cross and crucified.

After Jesus said, "It is finished," His head slumped to His chest, and He drew His last breath in His mortal body (John 19:30). He was then taken by those who loved Him and put in a tomb. Mary Magdalene, and the others who were last to leave the scene of the Cross, journeyed with His body as it was taken to the tomb, and there they saw the soldiers seal the grave.

The Jewish leaders and the high priest had said, "Let's seal the tomb lest His followers steal His body and say that He has risen." So they had a stone put in front of the tomb to seal it.

Then they added, "Let's post guards to make sure His followers don't break the seal and roll the stone away." So they posted centurions to stand guard in front of the tomb (Matt. 27:64-66).

And in the darkness and the bleakness of that hour, eleven men huddled together and reflected upon a Man whose life ended at age thirty-three. With heaviness of heart, those men who had walked by His side sat in almost utter despair. The disciples had seen the blind healed, the mute speak, the deaf hear, the crippled walk, and the dead raised to life through this Man, Jesus of Nazareth. Yet at that moment of darkness and despair, Jesus was lying in a tomb.

When the people crucified Jesus, they were thinking they would silence Him forever. They didn't realize that by crucifying Him they would only amplify the message—century upon century, upon century—that Jesus is the Deliverer. "Jesus Christ died for mankind!" became a message that has been heralded down through the eternal pages of time. You see, as they crucified Jesus, trying to snuff out the Life that would give life, they simply ignited a fire that will never be snuffed out!
