“‘You have a guard of soldiers,’ Pilate told them. ‘Go and make [Jesus’ tomb] as secure as you know how.’” (Matthew 27:65)
From this time until today, people have been trying to resist the resurrection as firmly, as forcefully, as securely as they know how… But it is not enough.
Resurrection always wins. Jesus always wins.
We may try to hold Him off with our excuses, but Jesus is patient and persistent as He draws our hearts to His. Others may try to constrain and contain His people, but we are patient and persistent as we share His love with the world.
No matter what obstacles or opposition may arise, this truth remains the same.
