Earthquakes (Easter Sunday 2018)

Did you realize that there were two earthquakes associated with the death and resurrection of Jesus? At the death of Jesus, it says, “…the earth shook and the rocks split.” (Matt. 27:51b). And then on the day that Jesus rose from the dead, it says, “There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.” (Matt. 28:2)

God still wants to get our attention. He doesn’t always use physical earthquakes, but that doesn’t mean He isn’t trying to shake us up. Ephesians 5:14 says, “Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead and Christ will shine on you.”

What about you? Is God trying to get your attention? Is He saying, “Wake up, O sleeper?”
