April 21: Comeback

 

Scripture Lesson: John 20:10-18

 

On this date in 1991, baseball witnessed the greatest extra inning comeback in Major League Baseball history. The Pirates scored 6 runs in the bottom of the 11th inning to erase a five-run Cubs lead from the top of the 11th, built largely on a grand slam home run from Andre Dawson. The Pirates had rallied from a 7-2 deficit to tie the game with 4 in the bottom of the 8th and one in the bottom of the 9th. The final Score of the record-setting extra-inning comeback was Pirates 13, Cubs 12.

 

Our Scripture lesson today is the greatest comeback in the history of the world. Jesus Christ came back from the dead when God raised Him on Easter Sunday. His resurrection remains the greatest comeback in all history. Jesus came back from the dead and appeared to Mary Magdalene in the garden outside the empty tomb. When Jesus appeared to her, Mary went to the disciples and told them that Jesus was alive! Without the death and resurrection of Jesus there would be no forgiveness of sins and no way for a sinful humanity to spend eternity with a sinless God. Jesus paid the price for our sins and, praise God, He lives today!

  1. What does the death and resurrection of Jesus mean to you?

  2. Why is the resurrection the world’s greatest comeback?

  3. How can we show those around us that Jesus is alive today?

Why not live today and every day with Resurrection Sunday in our hearts and minds?
