What's On Your Mind?

I was checking my Facebook and then it hits me when I saw "What's on your mind?" on the status box. I realized that what has been on my mind the whole day is that today, 2,000 years ago, people mourned for Jesus Christ's death. It was the day when Satan thought he had won by crucifying the Messiah on the cross. Christ's followers had lost all hopes. These things had been on my mind all day long. It was like I actually felt those feelings that they had. All their hope that Jesus would reign and be their King has gone. Just like that. They were mourning and weeping and grieving.

And these verses had been on my mind too!

John 16:20-22 New International Version (NIV)

20 Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. 
21 A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. 
22 So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.

We might be grieving and weeping for His excruciating death - the CRUCIFIXION. However, through His death , we are REDEEMED ! He gave us the greatest gift of all! Hallelujah! Rejoice everyone! 

Remember, He did that because of love. Because of LOVE. For you.

Tomorrow would be the day where He rose from the dead.

Matthew 28:1-6 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Has Risen

 1 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
 2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

 5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
