STONE ROLLED AWAY
Psalm 18:31 “For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?”
The Scene: The large rock in front of the tomb is a great symbol to the true believers in Jesus the Christ, their Lord, and in God the Father of all.
Most Christians know about the stone being rolled back at Jesus’ tomb, so people could see He had risen. The stone has another story to tell—it is evidence that nothing can stop our Lord and God–not a very heavy rock, not death, nor the weight of the sin of the world.
Jesus came out of the tomb, showed Himself to those He loved, so they could actually see Him. Then they knew the truth and believed in their hearts that He was, in fact, Jesus, Savior, Christ, King of all.
Psalm 18:46 ” The Lord lives! Praise be my Rock! Exalted be my Savior!”
Charles Spurgeon, a great preacher/teacher of the Word, preached, “Observe that here is a foundation laid. That stone rolled away from the sepulcher, typifying and certifying, as it does the resurrection of Jesus Christ, is a foundation stone (cornerstone) for the Christian faith. The fact of the resurrection is the keystone of Christianity. For all our hope hinges on that great fact.”
