Hmmm, very interesting thought!  Have you ever participated in a sporting event where you competed against others and made it to the championship game and won? Maybe you did not participate, but your school team or your favorite college or professional team did. Do you remember the day of the event and the celebration that took place after the win? Do you remember opening up the newspaper the next day to read about the event? DO you remember coming into contact with friends and acquaintances and everyone was talking about what had happened the day before “in the big game?” When MSU was eliminated from the NCAA tournament, it was in the papers and on the news for several days following. When the Super Bowl is played, the city of the team that wins celebrates for days following the game. You cannot open up a newspaper or turn on the TV without someone talking about the winners and how the game was won. 

Now let’s go back to last week. What did you do on Monday morning? Did you get up and start you day as any other day? Were you dreading what was planned for the day as you thought about your calendar and your to do list? What did you do? Let me ask you another question. Did you tell anyone about your celebration on last Sunday on Monday? 


The next few weeks, we will be looking at what God's Word says about our response to the Resurrection of our Savior...
