The cross was a defining moment in the story of Jesus—but it was not the END of the story! The cross gave way to a grave, and the grave gave way to the resurrection! This reminds us that OUR story doesn’t end on a cross either. Though our days may be dark, there is a sunrise coming. Though our times may be tough, there is victory just ahead. The Jesus we serve is not on a cross anymore. He is RISEN and we have HOPE!!
