He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
May You and your family have a wonderful Easter. May we all remember and reflect upon what is really important after all the cultural fun of Easter bunnies, colored eggs, and special ham dinners and family get togethers. May we remember what the day is really all about—the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Happy Resurrection Day!
When the women went to the tomb on Easter morning the rock was rolled away and the tomb was empty. Not only that but an angel met them there and said:
“Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come see the place where he lay.”
…And behold Jesus met them and said, “Greetings! Do not be afraid…” –Matt.28:5-10
Another good scripture to remember–this is what Jesus told Martha before he raised her brother Lazarus from the grave:
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this? -John 11:25-26
The good question for each one of us today—Do you believe this?
