March 26: That Glorious Day

Read Romans 6:1-11

When Jesus walked out of that empty tomb, He conquered death for more than just Himself. His took that journey to the empty tomb so you and I and all who will ever follow can run right behind Him out of that grave! Straight out of the tomb that held death, you and I can run freely and alive because Jesus Christ journeyed through the cross into the tomb, and then He left it empty.

The song Glorious Day by Kristian Stanfill, Jonathan Smith, Jason Ingram and Sean Curran of the Passion Conferences band expresses it well.

I was buried beneath my shame
Who could carry that kind of weight
It was my tomb
Till I met You
I was breathing, but not alive
All my failures I tried to hide
It was my tomb
Till I met You
You called my name
And I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day

It’s the truth about Jesus’ journey to the empty tomb. You and I can live because Jesus entered yours and my grave and left it empty when He conquered death and darkness!

Check out the story behind the song “Glorious Day” as writers Kristian Stanfill and Sean Curran tell it here, specifically in the first 7 minutes and 41 seconds of the following video. Then celebrate the fact that Jesus has called your name too! Rejoice in the truth that you can run straight out of that grave with Him! Then live like it’s true.
