He Is Risen!

Today is Easter, the holiest day of the Christian calendar.

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.

In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 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 over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” Then they remembered his words. – Luke 24: 1-8

I hope you all have a happy, healthy, peaceful day.

  1. The pastor said something very profound this morning – “The stone wasn’t rolled away so that Jesus could leave; it was rolled away so that his followers could see in.” What an amazing thought, the stone was rolled away so that we can see an empty tomb. He Is Risen Indeed!
