“Who will roll the stone away?” As if their task were not challenging enough, this heavy burden lay on the hearts and minds of the women as they made their way to the tomb on Easter morning. They witnessed the execution of their Teacher and Friend on Friday. They were slowing making their march to the cemetery to say their last goodbyes. Now they had to worry about the big stone in their way?

You and I may ask the very same question. Who will roll the stone away—the seemingly insurmountable obstacle that’s looming big before us right now? Problems with health? Relationships? Worried about paying the bills? All of us have stones in our lives - obstacles that impede the growth of our faith.

As it turned out, the stone was no obstacle at all. Jesus had conquered death. He wasn't even in that grave anymore. He was alive!

Who will roll the stone away? Jesus is the master stoneworker. As we celebrate the Easter season, we will be amazed to see what Jesus can do with the stones in our lives.

This coming Sunday we tackle the tough GRINDSTONE. Though we may be embarrassed when our faith is subjected to the grindstone of misgivings and doubt, Scripture is not. As Jesus answers doubts head on, faith finds even more reason for certainty and hope.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3 NIV

Hold on just a minute...let me check...Yup, he's still alive. Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed!!

Jesus is...Redeemer

In the Star-Spangled Banner, Americans sing about living in the “land of the free and home of the brave.” But do we always feel free? Aren’t there times when we feel as if “chains” were shackling us? There are the chains of responsibility at work and home, the pains we face or the financial strains that come our way. There are the chains of guilt that press us down as we look back at our past wrongdoings.

This month we celebrate Easter. What is Easter all about? In the Bible Job tells us, “I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth” (Job 19:25). Easter celebrates the reality that our Redeemer lives. A redeemer is someone who delivers others out of trouble by paying a great price for their freedom. Jesus, the Son of God, came into this world to be our Redeemer. From what did he redeem us?

The story is told of the devil, Satan, who once met Jesus. Satan had a caged wagon that was crammed full of people. And you were in it. “Who are these people?” Jesus asked. “They are the sinners of the world. I am taking them to hell with me,” Satan replied.

Jesus looked at Satan and said, “I don’t want that. Can I buy these people from you?”

“You don’t know what you are asking. The price is very high. And these people won’t always love you. They will doubt you, complain against you and even curse you at times,” responded Satan.

“I don’t care,” said Jesus. “I want to buy them back from you.”

“Okay, but it will cost your life” Satan said.

Jesus answered right back, “I’m willing to do that because I love them.”

And that is what Jesus did. He paid for your release, your freedom from sin’s punishment, by dying on the cross for you. He rose from the dead on Easter to prove that his payment was complete and you are freed. “Because I live, you also will live,” Jesus says to you (John 14:19). Rely on Jesus your Redeemer. By his blood he bought you for a life of glory in heaven. As your Redeemer he is always present to help as you deal with the “chains” of living in this world. Trust him for he loves you.
