"Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.'"
Today marks the greatest celebration of the Christian life. The greatest news that could be shared. He is not among the dead. He's alive, He's alive, He's alive!!
We have hope because He has won the victory over death and the grave. No matter how dark Friday was, no matter how difficult the waiting on Saturday, it's Sunday and Christ is victorious!
May the joy and grace of the Easter season be on you and your family! If you do not know the reason why we celebrate, I pray you find yourself surrounded with friends who exemplify the good news and are overjoyed to share. There are plenty of online opportunities today to join a celebration.
God’s blessings on you today and continuing through this year.
