Just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:27–28).

 

The day Jesus was born in Bethlehem was, to that point, the greatest day in history for God’s people — greater than the day Israel walked through the Red Sea, greater than the day the temple was finally built, greater even than the day God formed the earth and filled all its seas. As glorious as it was for God to mold the mountains and carve out each valley, it was all the more glorious for him to step onto those mountains and into those valleys.

 

The infant cries of Bethlehem were like every other child’s, and yet the armies of darkness quivered before them. The day he was laid in the manger was the day the sun finally rose for our salvation — “the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature” in a body, from a womb, on a great and glorious day.

 

Horrible Yet Glorious

 

But the glory of his birth day was only a child’s drawing of the day, more than thirty years later, when he laid that life down. It was a dark, horrible, frightening day — an innocent man arrested without cause, condemned without evidence, executed without justice, in the most excruciating and humiliating way possible. And yet it was a glorious day.

 

Those who saw the cross that day may have thought they watched Jesus crumble, defeated and conquered, before his enemies. He was crucified, but not defeated; killed, but not conquered; struck down, but not destroyed. Far from waving the white flag of surrender, his death subdued Satan and all his soldiers, forcing them to serve the story of our salvation.

 

“No one takes [my life] from me,” Jesus said, “but I lay it down of my own accord” (John 10:18). That is the glory of Good Friday. The Good Shepherd laid his life down — where he wanted, when he wanted, how he wanted — for the sheep he loved. He chose weakness. He chose suffering. He chose the cross. For us.

 

Even More Glorious

 

While Jesus lay in the tomb, the world laid silent. But then, on the third day, morning came — an even more glorious day. After Jesus breathed his last breath, tasting death firsthand for three long days, he put death itself to death by rising again.

 

The cross was not the defeat it had seemed to be, but a defiant, emphatic, all-powerful victory. “No one takes [my life] from me. . . . I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again” (John 10:18). Death could not hold him; the grave could not keep him. Of all the glories the world has ever displayed, none compares with the carpenter from Nazareth shedding death like a robe and walking out of the grave.

 

Having defeated death itself, he defeated death for us, saying, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die” (John 11:25–26). Resurrection Sunday is still, today, the most glorious day in history. But it will not always be so.

 

The Most Glorious Day

 

The day Jesus rose, he planted an invincible, unshakable flag of hope over the grave. How could anything ever surpass his victory? Only he could author a more glorious day, and he has, a day that is coming soon. “The trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:52). Death was defeated when the stone was rolled away, but it has still been allowed to harass and plague the earth — for now. But when Christ returns, we will sing,

 

“Death is swallowed up in victory.”  

“O death, where is your victory?  

O death, where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:54–55) 

 

No day will ever be like the day Jesus returns to gather his people: to finish what he started, to put an end to sin, to bring us finally home.

 

Two thousand years may have dampened or dulled our anticipation for that day, making us wonder if he will really come. But he will come. And he will come for those who are still eagerly waiting for him. Hebrews 9:27–28 says, “Just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.”

 

Has the eagerness slowly dissolved out of your waiting for him? Meditate, again, on just how glorious that great day will be.
