We all like a good come back story. Maybe the guy that starts on the tail out of the "B" and wins the feature. Could be the one that crashes hard in the heat and finishes the "A" in the top five. It could even be the little kid in youth baseball, the smallest one on the team, that gets the winning hit after striking out in his previous two at bats. We just like a good come back story.
This week we get to celebrate the greatest come back story of all time. A fellow was beaten in the street, then hung on a tree till he died then he came back, really. On the third day after the medical examiner pronounced him dead, he came back and walked among us. He had done this "back from the dead thing" for others but this time he did it for himself.
I feel as though I should give him a gift or something but he says all he wants is that I would be his friend and believe in him. He says he really cares about me and wants me to spend eternity with him. He has gone to prepare a place for me.
What a come back. He gets to spend his eternal life beside his father, God Almighty. He has offered me a place in the same community. Ya know you just can't pass on a deal like that. He says he has a place for you too. Hope to see you with my friend Jesus. You can make you own come back story. If I did, I know for sure you can.
