He is Risen!
The very purpose of Easter weekend reminds us, no matter what we face today, what we’ve been through, or what uncertainties tomorrow may hold, Christ is our Hope. He conquered death. He makes all things new.
He has risen! He has risen indeed!
He breathes new life, so that we can live free. You can try to bury Power, but it won’t stay there. You can try to bury Truth, but it is not dead. You can try to bury Love, but it cannot be contained. God’s not dead. And we’re not alone. Not ever. He lives!
May we allow that truth to soak in deep as we read these reminders from God’s Word.
“As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” Mark 16:5-7
“He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’” Luke 24:6-7
Thanks be to you God, for your gift of salvation thru Jesus Christ.
