Let God fill your mind with a knowledge that even death could not contain Jesus. God’s light has triumphed over darkness. As the sun rose on Saturday, sadness filled the hearts of Jesus’ disciples, family and friends. None of them understood that the death of Jesus -- the most undeserved death imaginable -- would yield a divine return. When Jesus drew His last breath, He disarmed the powers of darkness and triumphed over all authorities marshaled against the reign of God (Col. 2:14-15).
