A week from now, we’ll celebrate Easter—to commemorate the Resurrection of Christ. One of the best Easter sermons I ever heard was titled, “It’s Friday, But Don’t Worry, Because Sunday is Coming!” It was a reminder that on the day Jesus was crucified, everything was dark, evil, and appeared hopeless. Those closest to Jesus were in fear for their own lives, and felt that all they had devoted themselves to for 3 years died on that cross. They saw their Master and their hopes and faith buried in a borrowed tomb. That was Friday. But then came Sunday. It was the day that 3 women went to the tomb to honor a man who was dead. Instead they were the first to know that what they had witnessed on Friday WASN’T the last chapter. We all have a lot of Fridays in our lives. Bad doctor reports; financial problems just to pay rent or buy groceries; a sick child; broken relationships. Yes, it’s Friday, but don’t worry because Sunday is coming. The coronavirus and what it’s done to us individually and as a nation is truly a Friday. Even if you’re never afflicted with the VIRUS, you HAVE been affected by complete shutdown of our economy, culture, and even our recreational activities. It’s definitely Friday. But don’t worry, because Sunday is coming. As we observe Palm Sunday this weekend, remember that the same crowd who screamed “crucify him!” was shouting his praise and screaming “Hosannah!” the week before. Let’s not get lost in our Fridays, because Sunday is coming. God is good. All the time. All the time, God is good. From all of us here at the Huckabee Show, thanks for joining us, stay safe, and remember that Sunday IS coming!

    Dear Mike,

    This was one of the most inspiring messages I have ever read. I read it out loud to my 25 and 23 year old daughters and we were all moved to tears by your message of hope in our beloved Savior Jesus Christ. It truly touched my heart.

    God bless you,

    Lisa Gregory

    Would you know who authored the Easter sermon Mike mentioned on the show on 4/4/20,
    "It's Friday but Don't Worry Sunday is Coming? I would love to hear it in its entirety and pass
    it on to others? How uplifting it would be!
    Thank you so much,

    First of all I want to express my deep gratitude to your amazing daughter for her courageous efforts in combating misinformation. She truly is a Patriot! Please keep all our 1st responders in your prayers, especially the Navy Chaplains. Thank God and our President that the children are receiving (Comfort).
