He is Risen!

The potency of the Easter message is wrapped up in the empty tomb. Oh, how grateful I am, like most, if not everyone.  Jesus rose from the dead! He conquered death and the grave! Because he lives, so can we.

As we go through today and each day, may we remember that the power of the crucifixion lies in the resurrection. May we be thankful always for this fact, for now, through Jesus we have access to the great I Am.

May we also remember that whatever difficulty we are facing, it will not last forever. After the crucifixion came the resurrection, so once our hope it rightly placed so we shall come to life again.

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. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So, the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Matthew 28:2-10 niv

He is not here, he is risen!
