It appeared that DARKNESS had overcome LIGHT.
It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, Father, into your hands I commit my spirit! And having said this he breathed his last. Now when the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, Certainly this man was innocent! And all the crowds that had assembled for this spectacle, when they saw what had taken place, returned home beating their breasts.
It appeared that DARKNESS had overcome LIGHT. How devastating. Should those who saw hope die look for it elsewhere? Or resign to the miserable evidence that life is futile and suffering, evil and death are inevitably victorious?
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, Why do you seek the living among the dead?
LIGHT overcame. Hope in Christ, the LIVING ONE was displayed.
Today? Darkness is real, but Light is greater. Identify and invest in LIGHT.
