No one likes to hear “I told you so . . .”
Whether it’s the “suggested” route to some address that is either correct or incorrect or the outcome of the Super Bowl – no one likes to hear “I told you so!”
Unless . . . you’re talking about the Resurrection. Today is the day that we hear loud and clear from the empty tomb the proclamation of Christ: “I told you so!”
Good Friday is the day that the ‘sun refused to shine’, the day that the One to ‘save all history’ was killed, the day that the world as the disciples knew it fell apart.
Holy Saturday is the in-between day. It’s the day that the disciples wondered “what do we do now?”
and Resurrection Sunday is the day that sorrow is turned into joy, mourning is turned into dance. It’s a new day!
and I’m so thankful that I hear the words “I told you so!”
Christ the Lord is risen. He is risen indeed!
