Week 38 | The Death and Ressurection

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

There are usually two types of new coaches: coaches brought in to continue the success of a previous coach who has moved on, or coaches who have been brought in to bring new life to and resurrect a struggling team.

Take Deion Sanders for example. The NFL Hall of Famer was brought in to resurrect the Colorado football team who had gone 1-11 the previous year. He brought in new energy, new excitement, and new expectations, but not a lot of people believed he could turn the program around.

After beating ranked TCU in his first game as head coach, he said not everyone in the locker believed going into the game, but most of them do now.

What changed?


Work and action lead to belief. He told them what was going to happen, but they didn't believe it until they saw it for themselves. Now, there is no reason but to believe that he will completely change and resurrect the program at Colorado.

I'm in no way comparing Deion to Jesus, but Jesus was brought here to resurrect us and free us from the bondage of sin. When Jesus started preaching, he shared that the biggest commandments were not the Jewish laws that they were bound by, but love (Matthew 22:37-40). He taught the Jews how to be better people.

He also taught that He was the true son of God, and through Him, we could live a life of love, joy, and peace. But not everyone believed Him. Despite His preachings and many miracles, many people still didn't believe Him.

Do you know what changed that?


Jesus was hung on the cross for us. Being hung on the cross is a cruel way to die, but it had to happen. Three days after being declared dead, Jesus was resurrected as he was raised from the dead.

This was the action that showed He was real.

His actions and His resurrection give us hope. Now, through our own actions, we can be a light to others because we know that God is our one true God and will always guide us, lead us, and protect us.


1. How does the resurrection of Christ provide hope?

2. Have we shared our hope in Christ with others?

3. How do you inspire the people around you to change?
