Rescued

1 Corinthians 15:4- “(that) he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”

 

This week, a man was rescued from an abandoned mine shaft in my home state of Arizona. He had been trapped there for three days.

No food. No water. Cold desert temperatures. Two broken legs.

Oh, I should mention that he fought off three rattlesnakes.

What joy he must have felt to hear human voices overhead and realize that he would soon be reunited with his family.

Jesus was in the grave three days. 

He didn’t need a rescue team because God the Father raised him from the dead. 

Jesus had been separated from Him for three days because of the sin he bore for us. I can only imagine his joy at being reunited with his Father.

Joy unspeakable awaits each Christian, as well. We will experience the joy of all joys when we are reunited with our Savior!
