Believe The Unbelievable: Holy Week Final Day

On Resurrection Sunday, we move from doubt to being able to Believe the Unbelievable, in Jesus name.

I had many thoughts on how I could end this Holy Week and Lenten posts. There are so many different interesting aspects of what happened when Jesus rose. I was praying for the Lord to show me what direction He wanted me to go. He led me in an unlikely direction, but one that also makes TOTAL sense for this site.

I watched my dad’s church’s resurrection service, on zoom of course. During the service he played a snippet of the song Great Expectations by Steven Curtis Chapman. I hadn’t heard this song in years and it really touched my soul. I remember thinking it was a good song previously, but it never touched me like this before; my family had to listen to the song. God really spoke to my heart as I played the song for the rest of my family. It was then that I realized this was what I was going to write about.

The heart of Great Expectations is how we should live on this side of the cross.

The morning finds me here at heaven’s door
A place I’ve been so many times before
Familiar thoughts and phrases start to flow
And carry me to places that I know so well
But dare I go where I don’t understand
And do I dare remember where I am
I stand before the great eternal throne
The one that God Himself is seated on
And I, I’ve been invited as a son
Oh I, I’ve been invited to come and…

Believe the unbelievable
Receive the inconceivable
And see beyond my wildest imagination
Lord, I come with great expectations

Great Expectations (Verse 1, Chorus) – Steven Curtis Chapman

Yesterday, between the cross and the resurrection, there was mourning and doubt. On this side of the resurrection, we know that ANYTHING is possible in Jesus. I mentioned that no one, including the disciples, could comprehend a risen Jesus. That doubt was so strong that even when others said they saw Him, some still didn’t believe. Once we know that Jesus is risen, we can believe that, in Christ, ALL things are possible.

Our God was born of a virgin. He lived a perfect SINLESS life. Jesus calmed the seas, healed the sick and the lame, and fed thousands from a small lunch… twice! He showed us the Father, and promised the Holy Spirit. He fulfilled ALL the promises of the Messiah from the Old Testament. Christ prophecies His death and resurrection 3 days later. He died and rose again, Just As He Said. All of this, and sooo much more, shows us that we can believe the unbelievable because He has already done the unbelievable.

The Law and our flesh condemn us but Jesus offers us salvation from death and the slavery that sin had over us. He tells us that we can have life more abundantly if we follow Him. Christ says that we will be with Him in heaven, and have ETERNAL LIFE, if we believe in Him and follow Him as our Lord. We can receive the inconceivable promises of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because he has already done the unbelievable.

We believe and know we have received the inconceivable because we have seen our God do the unbelievable.

The disciples did great things because they saw the unbelievable. They were not afraid of all the things the government and the world threw at them because they lived through the inconceivable. Some of Jesus’ first words to the disciples upon resurrection was to not be afraid. When you have seen the God of the Universe do the impossible, you have nothing to be afraid of.

Let us all walk with the confidence that our God is with us. No matter what is happening, we can be confident He can do the unbelievable through, to, and for us. Even if we can’t imagine a way for God to change a situation, He can do the inconceivable.

That is our heart after the resurrection. A heart full of wonder and awe at our God who has done the unbelievable and given us the inconceivable. We can walk, in Him, with great expectations.

So wake the hope that slumbers in my soul
Stir the fire inside and make it glow
I’m trusting in a love that has no end
The Savior of this world has called me friend
And I, I’ve been invited with the Son
Oh I, I’ve been invited to come and…

We’ve been invited with the Son
And we’ve been invited to come and…

Believe the unbelievable
Receive the inconceivable
And see beyond our wildest imagination
Lord, we come with great expectations

Great Expectations (Verse 2) – Steven Curtis Chapman

Happy Resurrection Sunday! I hope it was full of praise for our Lord and time with our families, in person or virtually. I look forward to sharing with you all again tomorrow, Lord willing. God bless.
